The statutory notice period for these orders has now ended.
The Director of Environment and Community Services took a report to Full Council on 16 October 2013 to enable the Council to consider the objections received to the Experimental Orders being continued in force indefinitely.
After carefully considering these objections, together with other comments, the following decision was taken on 16 October 2013 by the Council:
“1         To confirm the Experimental Traffic Regulation Orders as Permanent Orders and which in their own right support the MetroBus North Fringe to Hengrove rapid transit scheme;
2          To authorise the Head of Legal and Democratic Services to seal the Permanent Orders and post Notices of the decision;
3          That officers are instructed to work withPatchway Town Councilto undertake further investigations to assess the remaining issues and to report the outcome of the investigations to a future Planning, Transportation & Strategic Environment Committee for consideration. “
The reasons for the decision are contained in the report which may be viewed here.
The permanent orders are to be made on 26 November 2013 and will become operative on 16 December 2013. Accordingly, a public notice will appear in the local newspaper shortly after the orders are made.

Consultation Topic
  • Local highways and transportation projects
Geographical area

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.
