A Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) is the legal instrument by which traffic authorities implement most traffic management controls on their roads.

Under the provisions of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, local authorities can implement TROs designed to regulate, restrict or prohibit the use of a road or any part of the width of a road by vehicular traffic or pedestrians. A TRO may take effect at all times or during specified periods, and certain classes of traffic may be exempted from a TRO.

Most TROs are made by the highway authority (Hertfordshire County Council) but we can implement waiting restriction TROs on Stevenage streets with the consent of the highway authority. Waiting restrictions TROs are used to regulate on-street parking (limited waiting restrictions, loading bays etc.) and to prohibit verge and footway parking. TROs can be made as a direct result of requests from local communities through local ward Councillors and/or the police or highway authority to address specific road safety or quality of life issues.

Since 2007, the civil enforcement of on-street parking restrictions has been carried out by our Civil Enforcement Officers (CEOs). All other non-parking TRO's such as speed limits, weight limits and vehicle movements are still enforced by the police.

Enquiries about on-street parking and requests for new parking restrictions or amendments to existing restrictions should be directed to us at the address below.
