Traffic Regulation Orders (TROs) are legal documents which accompany new restrictions on the road and enable them to be enforced.

Consultation procedure

TROs have to follow a legal procedure which ensures that they can be introduced appropriately, the process generally includes:

  1. Initial consultation. The local county councillor, Dorset Police representative and parish and town councils are consulted and need to give their full support of the proposal prior to any public advertisement
  2. 'Draft Order' stage - public advertisement of Draft Notice and consultation period. Each 'Draft' Order is publicly advertised in the local press, posted on the street and available online. Comments for or against the scheme must be made within three weeks
  3. Authority to proceed. If no objections are received, then authority to proceed can be obtained from senior management. If there are objections, these are reported to the appropriate Committee who make a recommendation to Cabinet. This may be to proceed as advertised, make modifications to or abandon the proposal altogether
  4. 'Made Order' stage - making of Order. When approval has been granted, the Order is then legally signed and sealed before it becomes operational. The 'Made' Order is then re-advertised and six weeks are given to challenge it in the High Court on procedural grounds.
