St Edmundsbury Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) consultation

Our consultation on the new traffic regulation order covering the St Edmundsbury area ran from 8 March to 1 April 2019.

This consultation is now closed.

We are consulting on a new Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) in the area covered by St Edmundsbury Borough Council. This covers:

  • waiting restrictions
  • loading restrictions
  • parking places

This new TRO uses maps to show existing static traffic restrictions, rather than the current text documents.

The maps have been created by checking what restrictions currently apply and which lines and signs are currently present. If any of these were different they have been changed.

Changes to existing restrictions are proposed:

  • On the south west side of Nethergate Street, Clare, the No Waiting at Any Time restriction that extends to 4 Nethergate Street is to be extended in a south west direction for approximately 5 metres;
  • On the west side of High Street, Clare, the limited waiting bay outside The Swan public house is to have the southern 1 metre removed;
  • On the east side of The Street, Barrow, the timed restricted waiting that extends east from the junction with Church Road is to be extended by 18 metres in a southerly direction to the end of the pedestrian railing;
  • On the east side of Church Row, Bury St Edmunds, the timed limited waiting that runs between numbers 41 and 34 is to be replaced by a No Waiting at Any Time restriction;
  • On the south side of Skyliner Way, Bury St Edmunds, east of the roundabout with Kempson Way the No Waiting at Any Time restriction alongside the new lay-by near the John Banks premises is to be removed.

Our TrafWeb page gives you access to the mapping the proposals are on.

Introduction to the deposit map file

The following documents are included within this file

  • The proposed traffic order
    • Articles
    • Map tiles overview
    • Map tile legend
    • Map tiles
  • Statement of Reasons
  • Notice of proposal to make the new order

The maps show the same details available on the online map. To view the area you are interested in, you need to:

  • Look at the first overview map and identify which large rectangle covers the area you are interested in. Note the number in that rectangle, for example 4
  • Scroll down until you come to a map with the number you previously noted displayed in the top right blue box
  • Use zoom and pan to identify the area of the map you are interested in. Make a note of the reference set in the appropriate rectangle, for example AJ198
  • Hold down CRTL + F to bring up a word find box. Type the grid number you’re looking for and press the next arrow until the map is shown with the reference highlighted in the bottom right corner

Alternatively, the map tile with the appropriate reference can be found by scrolling down the file. Each map tile reference can be found in the bottom right corner.

The map tiles are arranged so that the letters represent a row and the numbers represent a column, e.g.










The reference numbers are grouped together. For example, all references starting with AJ will follow each other in ascending number order followed by AK in ascending number order.

References starting AA will be towards the top of the street view maps and reference starting CT will be towards the bottom.
