Traffic Regulation Orders (TROs) are restrictions designed to maximise safe traffic flow.
Examples of TROs include:
Enforcement of TROs is the responsibility of Norfolk Police (speeds, access, weight limits etc) and your local district council (parking, yellow lines, school waiting and disabled bays).
Requests for new TROs are normally made to Norfolk County Council via the local town or parish council who will represent a wider consensus of the community need.
Any requests that are considered to have a genuine chance of meeting policy criteria will be added to a programme for future investigation.
For instance, typically, yellow lines will only be considered where there is significant traffic flow or accident history, or serious safety concern, and they will not automatically be considered for ‘nuisance’ parking. For a new speed limit it would be expected that certain levels of frontage property and road conditions and function suit the proposed limit.
If funding is allocated through the programme the investigation and consultation process normally takes six to nine months from initiation.
If there are objections;
If the report is agreed the scheme is progressed to implementation.
