Update to Temporary Traffic Regulation Orders in Swale High Streets

Published Monday 1 February, 2021
Last updated on Monday 1 February, 2021

As guidance from government adapts the restrictions in place to reflect the ever changing situation with the covid-19 pandemic, we are continuing to review the road closures in place in each of Swale’s town centres. After discussions the decision has been made to extend the temporary road closures that are currently in place.

Our priority is to keep everyone safe during the pandemic and to ensure the public can safely social distance while carrying out essential shopping and other tasks in our town centres. We will continue to monitor and review the road closures in place on a regular basis.

We are also looking to start the consultation process for permanent traffic regulation orders in each of Swale’s towns. To ensure that we are following proper procedures and so that the consultation is independent, fair, open and transparent we will procure a specialist consultant.

This process will also include consultations on the decision to extend the Temporary Traffic Regulation Order in our town centres until January 2022. We will share more information about these consultations as they develop.
