A Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) is a legal order, which allows us to regulate the speed, movement and parking of vehicles and regulate pedestrian movement, which are enforceable by law. The act governing Traffic Regulation Orders is the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984.
There are also other orders for pedestrian crossings and traffic calming schemes.
Introducing and enforcing a TRO
On average, a Traffic Regulation Order will take between 9 to 12 months from design to implementation.
The procedure includes statutory periods of advertising and consultation which have to be adhered to otherwise the legality of the order may be compromised.
The council's Civil Enforcement Officers enforce the Traffic Regulation Orders on the public highways.
Objecting to a TRO
Unless otherwise indicated, send objections to TROs to:
- Legal Governance and Monitoring
- Address Kirklees Council, 2nd Floor, High Street Buildings, Huddersfield, HD1 2ND
Where you can see a TRO
You can view them online:
The Traffic Penalty Tribunal is an independent body whose impartial, independent adjudicators consider appeals by motorists and vehicle owners.
TROs can also be inspected at the council's Legal Service and Highways Service by appointment. A copy can be requested but may be subject to a charge.
Every couple of year the council will consolidate a number of TROs into a single document. This is used purely as reference, the orders and plans within the document may not be objected to or challanged unless the specific TRO is mentioned under 'Proposed TROs'.
