Details of proposed Traffic Regulation Orders (TROs) that are out for consultation and Orders that have been made.

Current Consultations

Broadwater area

Following a review of the parking restrictions introduced throughout the Broadwater area in 2019 the Council is formally proposing the below changes/new restrictions. If you wish to take part in this consultation please contact us in writing or by email, before the end of the consultation, 18 June 2021. Further details can be found in the documents below.


The physical layout of Marshgate is changing due to the redevelopment of buildings in Queensway. The following traffic orders are therefore proposed to reinstate existing parking for disabled drivers and for the general public, and for loading to service the buildings, while maintaining the safe and expeditious flow of traffic on the road. It is also proposed to provide four new Electric Vehicle Charging bays here, and to update the parking bays for the existing Electric Vehicle Charging Points in Swingate so that they are not subject to pay-and-display controls.

Formal objections to the proposals, stating the grounds upon which they are made and the names and full address of the person making the objection should be made in writing to Stevenage Borough Council, at the address below or via email to before 18 June 2021. Comments in support of the proposals will also be received during this time.
