These are moving Traffic Regulation Orders (TROs) for speed limits or weight limits. See static TROs for static restrictions such as double yellow lines.

You can support, object or comment on an advertised order up to and including the closing date.

We anonymise comments before making them available for inspection by members of the public and committees.

Copies of public notices are advertised in the local area press. We do not have to display the TROs on this website by law. We aim to put them on this page as quickly as possible but sometimes there might be a delay.

Stages of consultation

TROs have to follow a legal procedure to make sure they can be introduced appropriately.

Initial consultation

The local county councillor, Dorset Police representative and parish and town councils are consulted. They need to give their full support of the proposal before any public advertisement.

Draft Order stage

The Draft Notice is advertised to the public. Each Draft Order is advertised in the local press, posted on the street and available online. Comments for or against the scheme must be made within 3 weeks.

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.

Made Order stage

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 6 weeks are given to challenge it in the High Court on procedural grounds.
