Made Traffic Regulation Order - Swale Amendment 9

The closing date for publishing these documents is Friday 21 August 2020.

A Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) is a legal order. It allows the Highway Authority (Kent County Council) to regulate the speed, movement and parking of vehicles. The act governing Traffic Orders is the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 and is enforceable by law.

Anyone can object to or support a proposed TRO's and comments must be submitted before the end of the consultation period, which is clearly stated in each order.

The formal consultation process for our latest Traffic Regulation Order, Swale Amendment 9, ran from Friday 13 December, 2019 to midday on Friday 10 January, 2020, and these documents are for the Made Order.
