Future Ways of Working re Community Traffic Regulation Orders

With the creation of County Local Forums, and the subsequent need for changes to governance, a review of Community Traffic Regulation Orders (TROs) has been undertaken to ensure the way they are prioritised, approved and delivered is fit for purpose and responds appropriately to community demand. 


As part of the review, the Assessment Framework used to consider Community TRO applications has been updated.  The new assessment considers Safety, People, Access, Costs and the Environment, (SPACE Assessment).  Working practices have also been developed to implement a rolling programme approach to the delivery of Community TROs, rather than an annual programme.
