Issue details

The Groves – The future of the Low Traffic Neighbourhood trial

Purpose of Report: The report provides an update on work to develop a community plan for the Groves area. As part of the development of the community plan an Experimental Traffic Regulation Order (ETRO) was made in September 2020, preventing traffic from travelling through the area whilst retaining vehicular access for all properties. As the ETRO is coming to an end the report will provide feedback from both the community consultation and the formal ETRO consultation.

The Executive will be asked to consider the objectives and the impacts of the Experimental Traffic Regulation Order in the Groves and the Groves community plan and to determine the next steps and any permanent changes to Traffic Regulation Orders.
