Stage 3 - Formal consultation

Once the informal consultation has closed all the responses have to be reviewed. Sometimes the responses show an overall support or objection to the proposals and the outcome is easily known. Most often there are conflicting responses and we need to find a balance to differing needs. The original proposals may be adjusted following consideration of the responses, or new proposals may be made.

When the final proposals and a draft traffic regulation order are ready, they must go through another round of consultation, called formal consultation. For this the proposals are advertised:

  • on street lampposts
  • in a local newspaper
  • by delivering letters to local residents and businesses, and,
  • on our consultation hub

Any objections to the proposals must be made in writing, either by letter, email or through the consultation hub.
