    This consultation gives you an opportunity to state your support or objection to the Traffic Regulation Orders which would be necessary to implement and enforce the restricted access zone

    Completed December 2021

    We intend to bring the TROs into effect as soon as possible, under a temporary managed arrangement. We also intend to engage further with user groups on the access operation and management of the permanent arrangements, to ensure it is safe but simple to access.
