Andover Town Centre Parking Scheme

A number of Traffic Regulation Orders (TROs) are to be consolidated in to a single TRO in the town centre area of Andover. These TROs are mainly text based and the new TRO will be mainly plan based to make them easier to understand and maintain.

A number of small changes are proposed to the existing restrictions to increase short stay parking places, accommodate development and correct anomalies in the existing TROs. These changes are listed in the table.

Due to minor amendments to the Notice, drawings and draft Order a new consultation is re-advertised to be consistent with the description below’

No comments were received and a decision was made to approve the scheme as advertised. The scheme is expected to be effective from 17 November 2017.
