We introduce traffic management schemes to solve problems relating to safety, parking, the environment, damage to structures and the movement of traffic. We also aim to promote cycling, walking and use of public transport, and to bring benefits to all members of the community.
We consult with the public on many proposed traffic management schemes. You usually have three weeks to object, starting from the date we publish a draft "traffic management order" (TMO). Draft TMOs are also published in the local press. We consider every objection and may redesign the scheme and consult again on revised proposals. Schemes are introduced after we make a legally enforceable "traffic order".
