Traffic Management Orders (TMOs)

This page provides information about Traffic Management Orders (TMOs) and notices for permanent and experimental schemes generated from within the council. TMOs are documents that provide the legal backing for the enforcement of road, traffic or parking schemes under the relevant national legislation.

TMO Restriction Types

  • Static restrictions  All parking and/or waiting, stopping and loading restrictions
  • Moving restrictions  Any restrictions to moving traffic (for example, ‘one-way’ operations, ‘no entry’ points, or bus lanes/gates)

Statutory Consultations

View and feedback on statutory consultations for static and moving schemes, via our interactive Public Consultation portal.

Active restrictions

View all active restrictions for static schemes (Parking & loading) and moving schemes (Speed & Movement), via our interactive Streets portal.

Permanent Orders

Permanent orders give rise to the majority of signs and lines that are placed on streets.

Not all on-street restrictions require an order eg. bus stops, clearways and box junctions.

  • Single/Double yellow lines
  • Parking places
  • Prohibited and compulsory turns
  • One-way traffic working
  • Speed limits

Experimental Orders

Experimental orders are used to enable the council to monitor the effect and vary as necessary. The duration of an experimental order lasts no more than 18 months before they're either:

  • Allowed to lapse
  • Amended or made permanent
