These Regulations are made in exercise of the powers conferred by sections 102E, 102G, 102H, 102J, 102K, 102L and 102S of the Local Transport Act 2008(1).

The Secretary of State, having regard to a proposal made under section 102F(3)(a) of the Local Transport Act 2008, considers that the making of these Regulations will facilitate the development and implementation of transport strategies in the area to which these Regulations relate, and that the objective of economic growth in the area would be furthered by the development and implementation of such strategies.

Consent has been obtained to the provisions made in these Regulations under section 102J of the Local Transport Act 2008 from those local authorities from which it is required under section 102J(6)(a) of that Act.

A draft of these Regulations has been approved by a resolution of each House of Parliament pursuant to section 102T of the Local Transport Act 2008.

EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations establish Transport for the North (TfN) as a sub-national transport body.

Part 5A of the Local Transport Act 2008 (as inserted by section 21 of the Cities and Local Government Devolution Act 2016) (“the 2008 Act”) provides for the establishment of sub-national transport bodies for the whole of the area of two or more relevant authorities. Sub-national transport bodies are bodies corporate which may be given power to exercise specific functions.

Regulations 1 to 4, and the Schedule, set out the name, commencement, interpretation, establishment and constitution of Transport for the North.

Regulations 5 to 8 provide for TfN’s general transport functions, powers to make capital grants and set up ticketing schemes and confer some Passenger Transport Body powers under s13 of the Railways Act 2005 in relation to rail franchising.

Regulations 9 to 12 provide for TfN to exercise various functions under the Highways Act 1980 as regards highways, concurrently with local authorities and jointly with the Secretary of State.

Regulations 12 and 13 provide for various references in the Highways Act 1980 to be treated as if they included references to TfN, so as to enable TfN to undertake various highways related functions.

Regulation 14 provides that prior to exercising the function of constructing new highways, TfN must first obtain the approval of various authorities and the Secretary of State, as to the manner in which it intends to exercise that function.

Regulation 15 provides that TfN may not exercise any other function listed in regulation 11, concurrently with a local authority, unless the manner in which it proposes to exercise such function has been approved by the local authority.

Regulation 16 ensures that a highway constructed by TfN will be maintainable at the public expense.

Regulation 17 places TfN under a duty, when constructing a new highway, to take such measures as appear to it to be appropriate to reduce the possibilities of accidents when that highway comes into use.

Regulation 18 makes provision for the constituent authorities to make a contribution in respect of any reasonably incurred costs of Transport for the North.

Regulation 19 makes some incidental provisions relating to Transport for the North to enable it to carry out its functions effectively.

An Explanatory Memorandum and a Parliamentary Report by the Secretary of State are available with these Regulations on www.legislation.gov.uk. Copies have also been placed in the Libraries of both Houses of Parliament.

A full regulatory impact assessment has not been prepared as this instrument will have no impact on the costs of business or the voluntary sector.
