2008 CHAPTER 26


Part 4: General provisions relating to passenger transport

Section 51: Transport Tribunal to decide appeals against traffic regulation conditions

150.This section amends section 9 of the TA 1985, which provides for a right of appeal against actions by a traffic commissioner in determining, or refusing to determine, traffic regulation conditions under section 7 of the TA 1985. The appeal currently lies to the Secretary of State and the effect of this amendment is to transfer it to the Transport Tribunal. This is consistent with the appeal process in respect of other decisions of traffic commissioners. The provisions in Schedule 4 to the TA 1985 (constitution, powers and proceedings of the Transport Tribunal) will apply to such appeals, including the right of appeal against a decision of the Transport Tribunal to the Court of Appeal on a point of law.
