TROs and Schemes by District currently under consultation
Arle Court Park & Ride
Gloucestershire County Council propose changes to parking restrictions in the Arle Court Park & Ride Car Park to prevent unsuitable use of the car park and prioritise parking at the site for Park & Ride users.
This proposal comprises introducing a new free-of-charge ‘bus-user parking permit’, which must be validated on a bus service licenced to serve the park and ride site, allowing those using a bus to continue to park for free. A new parking charge will be introduced for anyone parking in the car park and not using a bus – the proposed charge is £6 all day, or £3 after 1pm.
More detail is provided in the documents below. If you wish to comment on this proposal, you can do so in writing (addressed to the Head of Legal Services, Shire Hall, Westgate Street, Gloucester, GL1 2TG) or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org (please quote reference HBL/66813) no later than the 21st December 2018.

Railway Zone - Experimental Traffic Regulation Order (ETRO)
As you are aware GCC have been trialling an Experimental Traffic Regulation Order (ETRO) in three roads, in the vicinity of Cheltenham Railway Station; Eldorado Road, Christchurch Road and Queens Road.
In September 2018 the council, with support from GWR, introduced experimental parking measures on parts of the above three roads. This was to provide rail commuters with a suitable place to park when part of the station long stay car park closed for work to expand the car park. Around 100 bays parking bays - ten percent of the zone- are available to non residents for up to 12 hours using a free electronic voucher. Permit holders for zone 14 are also able to use the bays but can park for any length of time.
The ETRO has been in place for 18 months, during this time a consultation has taken place and data has been gathered. All comments have been duly considered and the data has been analysed throughout this period.
Based on the above and in order to support sustainable travel, the ETRO has now been made permanent. Please find below a copy of the TRO report along with the appendix and legal documentation.
Details for obtaining a voucher will be found on the sign plates next to these bays or by following this link. The plan (below) shows the parking bay locations.
This order has now been made permanent . Please see documents below.

Gloucester Transport Hub (Bus Station) - Traffic Regulation Orders
New proposed Orders 2018 - Proposed One-Way & Waiting Restrictions, on roads around the new Bus Station.
N.B. - The Waiting Restriction Order has now been made and will come into effect on 22nd February 2019.
Proposed traffic regulation orders to facilitate the redevelopment of Gloucester bus station. These include changes to traffic movements, pedestrian crossings, bus lanes and the re-opening of the Station Road / Bruton Way junction (near Prince Street). Please note that this does NOT include the partial closure of Bruton Way immediately in front of the new bus station.
The redevelopment of Gloucester Bus Station requires changes to be made to some Traffic Orders on the streets in the surrounding area. For more information, please see the "Download" panel on the right hand side of the screen.
The general effect of these Orders would be to:
- Revoke the existing Prohibition of Driving Order on Station Road, Gloucester at its junction with A430 Bruton Way to allow this junction to be re-opened to traffic.
- Prohibit U Turns at the new set of traffic signals that will be installed at the above junction. Right turns into Station Road from the southbound carriageway of the A430 Bruton Way will also be prohibited.
- Make changes to the bus lanes on Bruton Way, Station Road and Market Parade including shortening the lengths of the bus lanes, changing the exemptions and revoking parts of existing bus lanes.
- Revoke the existing one-way and compulsory left-turn Order on the access roads to the multi-storey car park in Bruton Way.
- Provide two new zebra crossings. These will replace the existing zebra crossing and pelican crossing on Station Road. The existing zebra crossings on both Bruton Way and the multi-storey car park entrance & exit roads will be removed.
These Orders will now come into effect on 7th August 2017.
It is proposed that this bus lane order will now be consolidated in to the Countywide Bus Lane Order 2017. Please see relevant documents below:
