Milsom Street: Experimental Traffic Regulation Order (ETRO) consultation

Purpose of the scheme

We need to introduce a Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) in order to implement or enforce parking restrictions of any kind. The purpose of this scheme is to implement an Experimental Traffic Regulation Order (ETRO) to continue the access restrictions currently in place in Milsom Street.

Implementing ETROs

The TROs are legal documents that give our CCTV Team and Enforcement Officers the necessary powers to restrict access, and control parking, within the required streets. There is a legal process we must follow to put these Orders into action. We do this in the following ways: 

Seek Council comment and decision

Your local Ward Members, relevant Bath & North East Somerset Cabinet Members for Transport and the Police comment on the TROs. In this particular ETRO, we have already completed this stage.

Hold a public consultation

When implementing a TRO, in this case an ETRO, there is a set legal process to follow. This includes a 6 month public consultation, where you have 6 months to comment on the proposed plan before a decision is made to make it permanent. You can state whether you support or object to the TRO, and give reasons for any objections.

Publicise the TROs

We will advertise the TROs in local newspapers and on-street notices. We will also be writing to properties in the restricted area.

Publish the consultation report

We will publish all comments we receive during these consultations in a publicly available report.

Make the final decision

Our Director of Place Management then makes the final informed decision about implementing the scheme, based on the consultation report.
