Temporary road closures

There are two types of road closure: 

  • Roadworks being carried out by utility companies or the Council
  • Closed for public events such as the local Carnival, half-marathon or Christmas festivities.

Apply for a temporary traffic regulation order

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 (£1,800) 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.

Apply for an event (street party)

To apply for a road closure for an event please read the following. This information is required when making an application: a road closure application form, a traffic management information form, Safety Advisory Group application form and a risk assessment for the event.

  • 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.
