DOWNEND, HENFIELD & WINTERBOURNE AREA Experimental Traffic Order 2018

Update Monday 21st October 2019

We have given consideration to the many responses submitted and are satisfied that there is sufficient support for some restriction to through traffic movements within the Moorend and Bury Hill areas and also at Bromley Heath Road access road. The councils feedback statement summarising both the next steps and consultation response is available using the links below.

Please note that where new restrictions are proposed to be trialled the physical features in place now, will remain there until November.


Have your say about an Experimental Traffic Order that will close roads to motor vehicle through traffic on Bromley Heath Road at Moorend, access road at Bromley Heath Road near Bromley Drive, Bury Hill, Coalsack Lane, Cuckoo Lane and Ruffet Road; from 30th April 2018.

In due course the Council will be considering whether the provisions of the experimental order should be continued in force indefinitely. Any person may object to the indefinite continuation of the experimental order within six months of the experimental order coming into operation.

Please view the Statement of Reasons and plans which may be downloaded using the links below, before answering the questionnaire. Responses are preferred in the form of the Experimental Traffic Order 2018 PT.5919 Questionnaire , however if you have any questions or feel you need to submit any supporting information other than what you have provided in the questionnaire you can email, telephone, or write to the addresses provided below:

 Update Friday 30th October 2018 

The closing date for comments about the Experimental Traffic Order is extended to 2nd November 2018. Your submission may still be made via the online questionnaire or in writing quoting reference L3/DS/STOP/PT.5919; to either the above address or that in the: Statutory Notice of Making. 

Include reasons for any comments you make regarding any decision to make an order for the indefinite continuation of this scheme. Comments in support of the scheme are also invited.

The closure of the Bromley Heath Road service road at its junction with Quakers Road will remain in the same position as during the Bromley Heath Viaduct works at the request of residents. Further consultation will take place with regard to the form and location a permanent closure might take.

The road closures at Coalsack Lane and Ruffet Road have not been implemented at request of the local community.

The experimental closures of Bromley Heath Road north of the ring road, Bury Hill and Cuckoo Lane will continue in the positions advertised, from Monday 30th April.

The council will consider comments made prior to the 30th April in the same manner as those submitted after the experimental traffic order came into effect. There is no requirement for a second questionnaire to be completed unless your opinion has changed. Only the most recent submission will be counted.

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.
