Isle of Wight Council

Highways - Traffic Regulation Orders

Traffic Regulation Orders (TRO) Consultations

The process for introducing changes on the highway is regulated by the law. Every proposal is advertised in the press, inviting public feedback to be given within 28 days of the proposal notice. This is called a formal TRO consultation.

The council is currently part-way through an Island wide review of traffic regulation orders. The current proposals mainly cover the Southern side of the Island.  They have been drawn up from suggestions made since 2013. The plans were agreed with the police, before consulting with town and parish councils and local elected members at the end of 2021.

All the current live proposals are within District 5, they will be open for public feedback from 30 September to 28 October 2022.

District 5 covers:

  • Ventnor
  • Wroxall
  • Niton and Whitwell
  • Chale.
