Roger Cornwell made this Freedom of Information request to Department for Transport

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Department for Transport,

For each of the calendar years 2014 to 2018 (five years) please provide me with a list of the requests made by Durham County Council under the terms of the Road Traffic Regulation (Special Events) Act 1994, including whether or not the request was approved.

(Your guidance on Temporary Traffic Regulation Orders for Special Events states that "A traffic authority can impose temporary highway restrictions for a special event once, and for up to three days, in any calendar year (1 Jan to 31 Dec). Restrictions for special events beyond this that affect the same length of road require approval from the Secretary of State for Transport." It is these that I am referring to.)

Yours faithfully,

Roger Cornwell

Department for Transport
