Experimental Traffic Orders
Gordon Road update

In June 2023, Gordon Road was converted to two-way working while the Lynchford Road works were on-going, in order to provide better access for businesses which were disrupted by the works.

The intention is now to consult on retaining Gordon Road as two-way on an experimental basis through an Experimental Traffic Order. The order is expected to go live early summer 2024. Once it is live, it will be uploaded to the scheme webpage.

Like permanent Traffic Regulation Orders, these are legal documents which Highways Authorities can introduce to change the way existing road’s function (such as converting a one-way road to two-way working). An experimental order can stay in force for a maximum of 18 months while the effects are monitored and assessed. Changes can be made during the first six months of the experimental period to any of the restrictions if necessary, before the Council decides whether or not to continue with the changes brought in by the experimental order on a permanent basis.

Once an order is in force, objections may be made to the order being made permanent, but these must be made within six months of the day that the experimental order comes into force. If feedback or an objection is received that suggests an immediate change needs to be made, this can be done and the experiment can then proceed. If the experimental order is changed, then further objections may be made within six months of the day that the experimental order is changed.


Camp Road Disabled Parking Bays

The two new disabled parking bays on Camp Road have been created under an Experimental Traffic Regulation Order (ETRO), this process provides an opportunity for people to contribute their views and anyone who is opposed to the restrictions continuing on a permanent basis can submit an objection. All comments received will be considered carefully and will help to determine whether the restrictions should continue in force indefinitely, whether to modify the arrangements, or whether to revert back to the original arrangement.

See the Public Notice for further details.

Schemes Information

Please see further information:

Funding Arrangements
Funding for the transport capital delivery schemes is separate from the County Council’s revenue budget and savings proposals. In the majority of cases funding comes from external grants and / or Section 106 contribution from developers. This funding usually has conditions that strictly control on how, where and when it can be spent.
