Look at proposed traffic regulation orders and comment on proposals

What are TROs?

A Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) is the legal document required to support a range of measures, which govern or restrict the use of public roads, including:

  • Double yellow lines
  • One-way streets
  • Banned turns
  • Bus lanes

Why do we need TROs?

UK law requires that TROs be in place to enable the police or, in the case of yellow lines and bus lanes, the council, to enforce these restrictions.

To create a TRO

  • Consultation with the emergency services and other public bodies takes place. Local interest groups such as residents and traders may be consulted where appropriate.
  • Advertisement of the TRO then takes place by placing a notice in the local press and displaying notices 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.
