Traffic Regulations Orders to be considered by BCP Council

Posted on Wednesday 4th September 2019

Proposals related to processing and approving Traffic Regulation Orders (TROs) across Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole, including those used for the provision of on-street disabled bays will be considered by BCP Council Cabinet Members next week (11 September 2019).

Specific TROs being considered at Cabinet next week include:

  • An Order to protect the path from James Road to Sheringham Road in Poole
  • A Public Footpath diversion Order in Bournemouth to make way for development at the Winter Gardens site.

At the meeting, Cabinet Members will also discuss the future process for approving TROs across Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole.

Councillor Andy Hadley, Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Transport and Infrastructure, said: “A TRO is a legal order which allows the Council to regulate the movement and parking of vehicles, as well as the movement of pedestrians in public space.  Most TROs come about in response to requests from residents and local groups seeking assistance in resolving issues that affect their daily lives.  It’s important the process for approving requests is seen to be open and transparent across Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole.”
