Cheltenham Transport Plan - Proposed Traffic Regulation Orders - Revised Consultation
The Cheltenham Transport Plan (CTP) is a set of proposals to change access to and reduce traffic levels in the heart of the town centre and to alter the existing one-way system. By reducing existing traffic levels it will enable Cheltenham Borough Council to develop future plans to improve pedestrian access along the High Street and create a more attractive environment.
The Traffic Regulation Orders (TROs) and associated site works propose to make a number of changes around the town centre; however they do not include any physical changes to the area at the junction of Clarence Street and High Street known locally as "Boots Corner".
Following on from the CTP scheme public consultation carried out in Summer 2013 and the first TRO consultation undertaken between March and April 2014 a further consultation was undertaken. This stage provided additional detail on the TROs and scope of the works and provided further opportunity to make representations on these.
At the Lead Cabinet Member (LCM) meeting on the 8th December the members reviewed the Lead Commissioner (Highways Authority) decision to refer the draft traffic regulation order to Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) Committee. This decision was ratified by the LCMs.
We held a Traffic Regulation Order Committee - Cheltenham Town Hall, GL50 1QA at 10am on Thursday 15 January 2015 and invitations to the event were sent to those who made representations during the Formal Advertising periods (March/April and October/November 2014).
