Traffic Regulation Orders

What are TROs?

Traffic regulation orders (TROs) are legal agreements which allow us or the police to enforce regulations including:

  • Double yellow lines
  • Speed limits
  • On-street parking
  • One-way streets
  • Traffic calming
  • Car parks

How are TROs created?

Once the proposal has been submitted, consultation must take place.

The views of local councillors and parish councils, the emergency services and sometimes other organizations such as local public transport operators will need to be sought.

Local residents, traders and community groups likely to be affected by the order will be consulted where appropriate.

The proposal may be amended after the consultation.

A notice is placed in the local press and in the roads affected.

Objections are then considered through the appropriate council procedure before it is decided how the matter will be taken forward.

 

The TRO will then be formally made and introduced.

The entire process can take many months to complete especially if objections result in the TRO being changed and re-advertised.

TROs can remain in operation indefinitely. If the council needs to modify or revoke a TRO, it must follow the same procedure as was used to create the TRO.

How to object to a TRO proposal

If any person wishes to question the validity of the Order or any of its powers on the grounds that it or they are not within the relevant powers conferred by the Act or that any requirements of the Act or of any instrument made under the Act has not been complied with, that person may, within six weeks from the date on which the Order is made, apply for that purpose to the High Court.
