Read document description

The Traffic Signs (Amendment) (No.2) Regulations and General Directions 2011 (SI 2011 No. 3041) further amends the Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions 2002 (“TSRGD 2002” – SI 2002 No. 3113) and came into force on 30 January 2012. Copies of the new SI are available from TSO at a price of £27.25 each. In addition to SI 2011 No. 3041, this Traffic Advisory Leaflet also contains guidance relating to the other sets of amendment regulations listed below, which came into force since the introduction of TSRGD 2002. Therefore, in addition to the current editions of Traffic Signs Manual, this document should be read in conjunction with the listed SIs and associated Traffic Advisory Leaflets, by all those involved in designing and implementing traffic management schemes and in road traffic regulation generally. While this Traffic Advisory Leaflet is intended to assist readers, it is neither legal advice nor a substitute for reference to the relevant legislation - and should not be relied on as such.

Policies and Good Practice Handbook

Read document description

The Policies and Good Practice Handbook is a reference tool for authorities in preparing and developing their LTPs and will be updated on a regular basis. It is not part of the statutory guidance. Given the number of links, authorities will need to prioritise according to their needs. Although the Handbook is categorised by policy area for simplicity, it is important to note that more can be achieved by linking these policies and work areas to maximise the impacts of the policy intervention as well as budgets.

Parking for Historic Towns

Read document description

The use of motor vehicles within historic town centres raises many conflicts – vehicle access is essential for the local economy to thrive – but it can detract from the character and amenity of the public realm and cause damage to the buildings. This paper explores how local parking arrangements for different classes of vehicle may mitigate this dichotomy. The nature of historic town centres and the definition of the public realm and its main functions are discussed. The Principles defined by the Historic Towns Forum (HTF) for historic street design and maintenance that are most relevant to vehicles are listed. The changing nature of vehicle use in and through our historic towns is noted and the parking provisions which should be attractive to different classes of vehicle users are analysed.

Inclusive Mobility

Read document description

These guidelines do not have any legal status and compliance with them should not be regarded as complying with the DDA, but they will provide guidance on established best practice in a general sense that relevant organizations can apply to their particular situation. Although the main purpose of these guidelines is to provide good access for disabled people, designs that satisfy their requirements also meet the needs of many other people. Those who are travelling with small children or are carrying luggage or heavy shopping will all benefit from an accessible environment, as will people with temporary mobility problems (e.g. a leg in plaster) and many older people. Thus, the overall objective of this guide is to provide inclusive design and through that achieve social inclusion.
