Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

5Certain councils may make orders under ss. 1 and 28 for purpose of general scheme of traffic control

(1)Without prejudice to sections 84A, 84B and 84C of this Act, section 1(5), so far as it relates to vehicles, section 1(6) and section 28(2)(a) of this Act shall not apply to any order made under the said sections 1 and 28 jointly by the council of a borough or urban district, or in Scotland, by a county council or town council, if the order is, and is stated to be, made by virtue of this subsection and for the purpose of a general scheme of traffic control in a stated area, nor to an order made under this Act revoking or varying an order so made.

(2)Any such provision of an order made as aforesaid as has effect by virtue of section 1 of this Act or of an order revoking or varying an order so made in so far as the last-mentioned order subsists by virtue of that section may, notwithstanding anything in that section, be made so as to apply to a trunk road.

(3)No authority shall make an order by virtue of subsection (1) above unless they are satisfied that the general scheme of traffic control—

(a)is adequate in point of area ; and

(b)takes adequate account of the need for maintaining the free movement of traffic and of the need for maintaining reasonable access to premises ; and

(c)makes provision for street parking places, and for regulating their use with the aid of apparatus or devices approved by the appropriate Minister, which is suitable, regard being had to the extent to which off-street parking places are available in the neighbourhood or their provision is likely to be encouraged by the scheme.

(4)Where the council of a county district (other than a rural district) not having power to make traffic regulation orders desires to introduce a general scheme of traffic control in the district or part of it, then (without prejudice to any other power of delegation) for the purpose of enabling that council to introduce such a scheme by means of an order made jointly under sections 1 and 28 of this Act there may—

(a)on the application of that council to the county council, be delegated to them by the county council all or any of the powers exercisable by the county council in relation to the county district under the said section 1, subject to such restrictions (if any) as the county council think fit to impose ;

(b)on the application of the first-mentioned council to the Minister, be delegated to them by him all or any of the powers exercisable by him under the said section 1 as respects trunk roads within the county district, subject to such restrictions (if any) as he thinks fit to impose.
