St.Helens Council, St Helens Metropolitan Borough Council

Dear Ms Pollock

 

Thank you for your request for information made under the Freedom of
Information Act 2000.

 

I can advise you that there are 2 sets of Regulations that cover the
making of Traffic Regulation Orders (TROs).

 

The procedure for making a permanent TRO is contained within The Local
Authorities Traffic Orders (Procedure) (England and Wales) Regulations
1996.

 

The procedure for making a temporary TRO for such things as temporary road
closures, is contained within The Road Traffic (Temporary Restrictions)
Procedure Regulations 1992.

 

Permanent Traffic Regulation Orders

 

In the case of a permanent TRO, Section 7, Paragraph 1 of The Local
Authorities Traffic Orders (Procedure) (England and Wales) Regulations
1996 states that an order making authority shall before making an order:-

 1. Publish at least once a notice in a newspaper circulating in the area
in which any road or other place to which the order relates is
situated.
 2. Take such steps as it may consider appropriate for ensuring that
adequate publicity about the order is given to persons likely to be
affected by the provision and, without prejudice to the generality of
this sub-paragraph, such steps may include

a) The display of notices in roads or other places affected by the order,
or

 

b) The delivery of notices or letters to premises or premises occupied by
persons appearing to the authority to be likely to be affected by any
provision of the order.

 

Temporary Traffic Regulation Orders

 

In the case of a temporary TRO, Section 3, Paragraph 2 of The Road Traffic
(Temporary Restrictions) Procedure Regulations 1992 states that:-

 1. Not less than 7 days before making an order, the traffic authority
shall publish notice of their intention to make the order in one or
more newspapers circulating in the area in which any road to which any
road to which the order relates is situated.

Presently there are no legal requirements contained within the
aforementioned Regulations for notices to be published on the Council’s
website.

 

Best Regards

 

David Wainwright

Principal Traffic Engineer
