Traffic Regulation Orders (TRO)

What are TROs?

A Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) is a legal document enabling the Council and the Police to regulate and restrict the use of public roads. This includes:

  • Parking restrictions (single and double yellow lines)
  • No right or left turns
  • Weight restrictions
  • Speed limits
  • Resident parking schemes
  • Loading bays.

Why do we use TROs?

TROs benefit both residents and businesses by:

  • Improving road safety
  • Helping the flow of traffic
  • Preventing serious damage to roads
  • Preserving the character/amenity of an area.
