How we get your views
We consult on proposals to make Permanent Orders with the emergency services, other statutory bodies and the general public who can make representations / objections. Our TMOs are published in the Surrey Comet and the London Gazette and if the council feels additional publicity is needed they can choose to erect notices on lamp columns in the roads to which any TMO proposal refers.
These are also made available for inspection at local libraries and in our Information Advice Centre, Guildhall 2.
For further information or if you wish to submit an objection or comment on a draft TMO proposal, please send this in writing to the Director of Place, Traffic Order Section before the consultation end date (usually 21 days after the publishing of the public notice).
Traffic Management Orders (TMO) Current statutory consultations
For information only: certain orders and notices are advertised as ‘for information only’ and are not subject to the statutory consultation process e.g. Temporary, Special Event, Pedestrian Crossings and therefore comments will not be able to be made.
After consultations are complete, we have up to two years to decide on whether to implement a TMO or not. During this time the TMOs status is described as 'unmade'.
Made traffic management orders
TMOs that have been implemented are described as 'made' and are currently enforceable.
