We advertise and consult on all Traffic Orders. Anyone can object to, or support, any of the proposed Traffic Orders.

Your comments must be submitted before the end of the consultation period. Details on how you can submit your comments and the deadline are included in each Order.

At the end of the consultation period, all feedback will be considered for a decision on whether to implement the Order.

The proposed Traffic Order goes through the following stages:

  1. Notice Of Intention (NOI) -  the formal announcement of the proposed Traffic Order and the consultation closing date.
  2. Notice of Making (NOM) - the formal announcement that the Traffic Order will go ahead, which we produce after the consultation if there are no changes required.
  3. Order - this provides details of the Traffic Order and restrictions, as well as the date the order will come into effect.
