Parking restrictions require a Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) and are installed to improve road safety and reduce congestion.
The legal document that creates a local traffic rule, which requires road users to obey certain conditions e.g. one-way systems, speed limits, weight limits, movement and waiting restrictions/ prohibitions.
To control or direct traffic.
To reduce and manage congestion
To reduce danger to all road users
To prevent damage to roads, bridges etc.
To preserve the character, or amenity, of an area
The Traffic, Transport and Engineering services team use a scoring system to assess all TRO requests.
The highest scoring proposed TROs are presented to the Highways and Environment Cabinet Member in May for approval.
The TROs are then advertised and the public are given 21 days to object to its installation.
At the end of this period a report detailing the objections is produced and taken back to the Cabinet Member who then determines whether to introduce the TRO.
Links to information such as car park tariffs and limited waiting restriction times are available. Please note that for off-street parking, only those car parks owned and managed by Dudley Council are available.
The Traffic Scheme Consultation Database is a way for you to find out what consultations concerning traffic schemes have happened, are happening or are about to happen in the Dudley Borough. You can see what the current status of a consultation is and can can get involved by taking part in an online short questionnaire about any ongoing consultation we are running.
