Traffic Regulation Orders

A Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) is a legal order introduced by Herefordshire Council, as highway authority for the majority of the county's roads. It enables enforcement of various road regulations by the police or our own on-street parking and Civil Enforcement Officers. Most Traffic Regulation Orders arise from a request from local communities and/or the police, to address specific safety, traffic congestion or quality of life issues. Traffic Regulation Order requests can only be made through your local councillor and/or your parish or town councillor. If you would like to suggest a change to traffic regulations, please contact your local councillor. The orders inform people of highway changes and the likely effects they will have. TROs are required for many different road restrictions including:

  • Speed limits
  • One way streets
  • Weight restrictions
  • On-street parking

Request a Traffic Regulation Order

You should contact your local councillor and/or your parish or town council to request a traffic regulation order. 

This is because:

  • Your councillor may be aware of similar requests and is best placed to assess and co-ordinate an application
  • It is a lengthy procedure, typically six to nine months, therefore, an indication of support from your local councillor is required prior to embarking on the implementation procedure.
