Minor traffic and parking improvement scheme

The Council has a formal policy for assessing and implementing minor traffic and parking improvement schemes.

We have a formal policy for assessing and implementing minor traffic and parking improvement schemes.

This helps requests to be dealt with in a fair and consistent way through a simple priority system.

Many requests we get need a Traffic Regulation Order (TRO). These govern restrictions, such as:

  • Prohibiting or restricting vehicular access to a road.
  • Loading and waiting restrictions.
  • One way schemes.
  • Changes to speed limits.

We get many requests of this type each year. Currently, the only areas considered for individual schemes and prioritised for possible inclusion in our programme of works are:

  • Where there have been reportable injury related accidents in the last five years.

Before you apply, check if the area meets the criteria at Crashmap.

Requests which do not needs a formal TRO will be assessed by our traffic liaison officer in the first instance. Again, those that have merit will be included in a future programme of works. The formal regulation orders accident statistics will form the core of this prioritisation.

How to apply for a new scheme

To make a request please download and complete:

It is important that your request gives as much information as possible. Include details of the problems as you see them, location of the problem, times/days there is a problem etc. If you have an idea of how the problem could be resolved please also include this in your application.

Return completed forms by email: traffic@calderdale.gov.uk.

What happens to your request

When we get an application:

Where a TRO is needed:

  • Your requests is recorded and a unique service request number is generated.
  • The area concerned is checked for injury accidents in the last five years. Where there is none, your requests will not be taken forwarded at this time as an individual scheme. You will be informed of this and provided with the reference number. If accidents have occurred, your request will be assessed and prioritised for possible inclusion in our program of works for 2019/20. You will be advised of this and provided with a reference number.
  • Once the assessment is complete you will be updated of the outcome.

Where a TRO is not needed:

  • Your request is recorded, acknowledged and a unique reference number provided.
  • The Traffic Liaison officer will assess the merits of your request. They will prioritise it for possible inclusion in a future program of works, if feasible. (As budgets are limited priority will always be given to sites with recorded injury accidents.)
  • Once the assessment if completed you will be informed of the outcome.

How long the process normally takes

We get many requests about traffic related issues. While every effort is made to give you a response within six weeks, it is not always possible.

  • Schemes that have been identified as a possible TRO and included in our program of works, can typically take 12 months.
  • There is a legal process to follow. This involves consultation (formal and informal) with all who may be affected by the proposals and the emergency services.

Please note: Due to the consultation, not all proposed schemes will progress.
