Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Local Authorities' Traffic Orders (Procedure) (England and Wales) Regulations 1996 in relation to Wales.

Sections 85 and 86 of the Traffic Management Act 2004 impose prohibitions on double parking and parking at dropped or raised footways in special enforcement areas designated under that Act.

Sections 85(8) and 86(9) of the 2004 Act provide that prohibitions are enforceable as if imposed by orders under section 1 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984.

Regulation 2 of these Regulations amends regulation 18 of the 1996 Regulations so as to provide that there is no requirement to place and maintain traffic signs to indicate the effect of sections 85 or 86 on roads in a special enforcement area in Wales.

No regulatory impact assessment has been prepared for this instrument as it has no significant effect on the cost to business and the voluntary sector.
