Before you start
Applications must include a location plan detailing the restrictions requested and where applicable a plan showing proposed diversion signing details.
If you're requesting a road closure please state if emergency service access will be maintained in the 'Restriction Requested' section of the online form.
Restrictions up to a maximum of 5 days require a Temporary Restriction Notice (TRN) and completed application forms must be received no less than 4 weeks prior to the proposed commencement of the restrictions.
Restrictions for durations of more than 5 days or those associated with an event being held on or near a public road, require a Temporary Traffic Regulation Order (TTRO) and completed application forms must be received no less than 12 weeks prior to the proposed commencement of the restrictions. This is to allow for assessment of the application and the 8 weeks processing time for the order
