KINGSWOOD - Brook Road - Prohibition of Driving Restricted Hours - Variation No.1 - ETO 2021

Between 19th August 2020 and 1st March 2021, the Council introduced an Experimental Traffic Regulation Order the effect of which was to prohibit the driving of motor vehicles in the length of Brook Road, which extends from its junction with Tenniscourt Road for a distance of 272m, during the restricted hours of 8:25 – 8:50am and 3:00 – 3:30pm, Monday to Friday during term time only, as shown on the traffic signs placed at the entrance to the zone.

However, having considered comments made within several collated observational reports that have been prepared by South Gloucestershire Council Officers, along with progress meetings with the school during the first 6-month ETRO period, it is proposed to process a variation order for this school street scheme. You can view details of the required variations within the consultation documents section below. 

The variation order becomes operative on 30th June 2021.

To tell us your views you can: Respond to the Questionnaire

Please view the Statement of Reasons, Notice of Proposals and the Proposal Drawing before answering the questionnaire.

Comments must be sent to us in writing after the measures are in place, and should preferably be submitted using the online questionnaire.

Please include reasons for any comments you make against any decision to make an order for the indefinite continuation of this scheme. Comments in support of the scheme and your reasons for making them are also invited.

Please also note that all representations received may be considered in public by the Council and that the substance of any representation together with the name and address of the person making it could become available for public inspection.

If you have any questions that are not answered by the online scheme information before submitting a response, you can request assistance by email or telephone using the contact details provided below. 

The council will in due course consider all submissions and other information collected during the trial before making a decision whether to make the changes permanent. This will happen within 18 months of commencement.

Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
