Remporary traffic regulation order amendment requests

We're waiting for Alex Fox to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear House of Commons,

Have Manchester City Council or MPs put in a request for any bylaw for road closer to traffic or for any amendments to temporary traffic regulation orders (TTRO) under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 to either restrict or prohibit traffic for the past 5 years.

Please say whether such a revised set has been received by your department, also say whether such proposed byelaws or amendments (TTRO) have been approved or disapproved by your department and provide copies of any documents which communicated this approval or disapproval to Manchester City Council.

On the on the other hand, should Manchester City Council have submitted such proposed byelaws or amendments for (TTRO) and subsequently have withdrawn such a submission, please provide copies of any documents which communicated this withdrawal to your department.

Yours faithfully,

Alex Fox

Dear Alex Fox,  

 

Freedom of Information request F17-122

 

Thank you for your request for information as copied below. You asked a
number of questions relating to Manchester City Council and proposed
bylaws for amendments to temporary traffic regulation orders (TTRO), which
we have sought to address below.

 

1)  Have Manchester City Council or MPs put in a request for any bylaw for
road closer to traffic or for any amendments to temporary traffic
regulation orders (TTRO) under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 to
either restrict or prohibit traffic for the past 5 years.

and

2)  Please say whether such a revised set has been received by your
department, also say whether such proposed byelaws or amendments (TTRO)
have been approved or disapproved by your department and provide copies of
any documents which communicated this approval or disapproval to
Manchester City Council.

This information is not held by the House of Commons.

 

It may help you to know that local authorities and certain other bodies
have powers under various Acts of Parliament to make byelaws, which are
essentially local laws, intended to deal with local issues, and not
national issues. In England, byelaws must be approved by central
government, and in most cases, be confirmed by the Secretary of State of
the relevant Government department before they come into effect. The House
of Commons forms part of the UK’s Legislature and is not part of the
Government (the Executive).  Therefore, you are seeking information which
is most likely held by a Government Department and you may wish to
consider submitting your request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000
to the Department for Transport.  Contact details can be found
at:[1]https://www.gov.uk/government/organisati...

 

You may also wish to submit your request to Manchester City Council
directly. Contact details can be found at:
[2]http://www.manchester.gov.uk/

 

It may help you to know that further guidance on Byelaws, produced by the
Department for Communities and Local Government, can be found here:

Additionally, the following House of Commons Library briefing papers may
be of interest to you:

o Roads: Traffic Regulation Orders (TRO)

o Local Authority Byelaws (1 March 2016):
[5]http://researchbriefings.parliament.uk/R...

 

 

You may, if dissatisfied with the handling of your request, complain to
the House of Commons. Alternatively, if you are dissatisfied with the
outcome of your request you may ask the House of Commons to conduct an
internal review of any decision regarding your request. Complaints or
requests for internal review should be addressed to: Information Rights
and Information Security Service, Research and Information Team, House of
Commons, London SW1A 0AA or [6][House of Commons request email]. Please ensure
that you specify the full reasons for your complaint or internal review
along with any arguments or points that you wish to make.

 

If you remain dissatisfied, you may appeal to the Information Commissioner
at Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF,
[7]www.ico.gov.uk.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Lauren
