Decision details

Coppergate Traffic Regulation Order

Decision Maker: Executive

Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


Purpose of Report: To present proposals for the reinstatement of the Coppergate traffic restrictions including potential alterations to the Traffic Regulation Order, details of the proposed signage and consultation arrangements.

Executive will be asked to consider approval to consult on the Traffic Regulation Order and signage.


Resolved:  That the Executive approve:

(i)           The advertising of a revised Traffic Regulation Order, as set out in Option 2 of the report. The revised TRO will seek to:

·                        change the exemption to the Coppergate (Local Bus Priority) TRO from “except taxis and Private Hire vehicles” to “except permit holders”, and to define taxi and private hire vehicle operators as “permit holders”

·                        change the hours of operation to 8am to 6pm (as approved previously)

·                        tidy drafting to resolve previous criticisms from the Traffic Penalty Tribunal.

(ii)          An extended consultation process as outlined in paragraphs 12 and 13 of the report.

Reason:   (i)        To enable the introduction of the scheme in a manner that is compliant with the traffic signing regulations and accurately conveys the meaning of the TRO.

   (ii)          To facilitate greater participation in the consultation process for this scheme in response to the previous significant interest and provide for wider understanding of the proposal for key stakeholders.
