YATE – Rodford Way – Proposed Prohibition of ‘U’ Turns Order – STATUTURY NOTICE

The Council proposes to make an order prohibiting vehicles making 'U' turns through the gaps in the central reservation in a length of Rodford Way, Yate.

Full details of the proposal, together with a plan, a statement of the Council's reasons for making the order and a copy of the draft order have been deposited at Chipping Sodbury Public Library where they may be inspected, free of charge, during normal library opening hours.

The statutory period for representation has closed. 
On 29 January 2018 the Director of Environment, Planning and Community Services acting under delegated authority considered the objections and comments received in response to the advertisement of the above proposed traffic order. After carefully considering these objections together with the comments the following decision was taken:


  1. Both the local members and officers see value in progressing the proposed U-turn restrictions.  It is therefore recommended that the proposed prohibition east of Chargrove to the end of Rodford Way, Dodington, should be implemented as advertised.
  2. That the Head of Legal Governance and Democratic Services be authorised to seal the Traffic Regulation Orders.
  3. That the objectors are informed accordingly.

Decision ECS03/2018 relating to this matter may be viewed here.

The order was made on 27 March 2018 and will become operative on 30 April 2018. A public notice will appear in the local newspaper shortly.

Consultation Topic
  • Local highways and transportation projects
Geographical area
  • Dodington
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.
Target Audience
  • All residents
  • General public
