Beckford Road: Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) consultation

View Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) documents

Why we have TROs

Traffic Regulation Orders (TROs) are the legal documents that restrict or prohibit use of the highway network. They help manage the highway network for all road users, including pedestrians, and they aim to improve road safety and access to facilities. 

We can use permanent or temporary TROs to manage speed limits, change road features, or restrict on-street parking, to ensure that this is fair to all road users, and the way that we control and enforce regulations is transparent.

For permanent changes to traffic regulation, we generally only introduce a TRO following a period of research, consultation and discussion of proposals, leading to a decision. We invite members of the public, experts, and councillors to contribute to that discussion, and our Council Cabinet makes the final decision.

How we consult on and implement TROs

The TRO is issued when we are preparing to implement regulations. We are legally obliged to advertise all TROs and give the public an opportunity to state their support or objection to them. These comments will be publicly available after the TRO consultation. The final decision to implement new regulations will be made after the TRO consultation. Once a TRO is sealed, or becomes official council policy, we publish it permanently on our website. It then normally takes a short period for the new regulations to come into force.

The TRO documents in this consultation

There are 3 TROs, to cover different things that we will need to do, to implement the scheme: introducing cycle lanes, changing parking arrangements, and building speed humps in parts of the road. Each TRO consists of three types of documents:

  • A notice summarising the proposed order and inviting comments, on our TRO web pages
  • A report which shows the internal consultation and discussion we have had in preparing the Order
  • A legal order and mapping, showing where and when the Order will apply. The Order will include blanks for dates and signatories, which will be completed if the order is approved and implemented

These are legal documents which have to follow a standard wording and format. You may find the summary of the proposals and scheme map on our Scheme overview page and details of traffic control measures on What this means for you pages are a clearer and simpler way to understand the details of what we are proposing. 

How to access and study the documents

The Orders and mapping documents are in PDF format. You can choose to download them, print them or view them online. You will save resources, and may find it easier, to read them on-screen rather than printing them.

We have worked hard to make these documents as accessible as possible, but some issues may still remain. If you would like to request an alternative format or paper copy of any document, or part of a document, please email or call Council Connect on 01225 39 40 41

Printed copies of all the documents are available to view at our One Stop Shops for the duration of the consultation.
