Temporary road closures

Applying for a Temporary Road Closure

There are three types of road closure - 1) Utilities/roadworks; 2) Community Events; 3) Street Parties.

1) Temporary Road Closures/Restrictions for Roadworks by Utility Companies

To apply for a closure to accommodate roadworks carried out by utility companies or the Council please read the following and complete the Temporary Traffic Regulation Order (TTRO) application form and email it to infrastructure@hart.gov.uk.

Temporary Traffic Regulation Orders (TTROs) can be arranged when it is necessary to temporarily control vehicular or pedestrian activities along a length of public highway. Most commonly TTROs are road closures arranged on behalf of utility companies, developers or the highway authority; however they can also take the form of temporary speed limits, parking restrictions or one way orders. 

  • A temporary road closure can take up to four weeks to process due to the need to advertise closure notices within the press. Failure to provide all the information requested could result in delays in processing the application.

  • Applicants are required to pay the legal and administrative cost (£1,900) of processing the order and pay the cost (approx. £325 + VAT) of publishing notices within the local press.

  • The applicant is required to carry Public Liability Insurance to the value of £10 million per claim. Applicants will also be responsible for the signing of the road closure and the diversion route.

Please see the table below for current and planned closure for roadworks.

2) Temporary Road Closures for Community Events (i.e. Carnival, Christmas Market etc)

To apply please complete and return the following forms:  SAG Application Form, Traffic Management Application Form.

  • An event road closure application must be made eight weeks before the event. 

  • The applicant is required to carry Public Liability Insurance to the value of £10 million per claim.

  • Applicants will also be responsible for the signing of the road closure and the diversion route.

  • The event organiser must consult with all residents, businesses and the local town or parish council. If the event is on a local bus route then the bus company must also be consulted.

  • Access for emergency vehicles must be available at all times during the closure.

  • All litter, signs, notices, etc. must be removed as soon as possible after the event.

3) Temporary Road Closures for Street Parties

Central government has published guidance including tips, advice and support on organising a street party.

The advice is for private street parties that groups of residents arrange and which need no insurance or formal risk-assessment. It covers how to arrange a temporary road closure and some street party myths and facts.

To apply for a street party road closure please download our Street Party Application Form for more information.
