Some changes to disabled parking bays and loading bays

The town centre has undergone sizeable economic redevelopment including significant physical changes to the street layout resulting in this review of the Traffic Regulation Orders.

The Order will come into effect on 11 September 2021 for a trial period of up to 18 months during which time the Council will assess the effectiveness of the restrictions and will monitor their impact on other roads in the area. It will then consider whether the measures should be continued in force permanently.

More detailed documents and a plan are available to view on the Council’s website at

If any person wishes to question the validity of the Order or of any of its provisions on the grounds that it or they are not within the powers conferred by the Act, or that any requirement of the Act or of any instrument made under the Act has not been complied with, that person may, within 6 weeks from the date on which the Order is made, apply for the purpose to the High Court.
