LONDON BOROUGH OF BARNET THE BARNET (GREATER LONDON) (RESTRICTION OF GOODS VEHICLES) (REVOCATION) ORDER 20**
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Council of the London Borough of Barnet propose to make the above-mentioned Order under Section 6 of the Road Traffic Act 1984 and all other enabling powers. The general effect of the Order would be to revoke the Barnet (Greater London (Restriction of Goods Vehicles) Traffic Order 1985) (Amendment No. 3) Traffic Order 1996. This would bring the roads in the London Borough of Barnet into the ambit of the Greater London (Restriction of Goods Vehicles) Traffic Order 1985 (1985 TMO) which is the London-wide Traffic Management Order under which the London Lorry Control Scheme (LLCS) is established by London Councils. The London Lorry Control Scheme is a permit scheme that imposes conditions on the use of larger Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs) (over 18 tonnes) off the Excluded Route Network at night-times and weekends in London, to ensure they operate for a legitimate business purpose and in a safe, quiet and environmental way. The LLSC is administered and enforced by London Councils on behalf of the London Boroughs and Transport for London (TfL). Barnet Council removed itself from the 1985 TMO in 1996 at least in part due to cost of membership of the scheme at the time. The LLCS is now self-financing so there is no charge to boroughs related to London Councils administering and enforcing the scheme, and re-joining the scheme will improve the regulation of HGV movements on borough roads. The 1985 TMO has also been amended to incorporate the requirements of the Londonwide HGV Safety Permit (HSP) Scheme. The HSP scheme is intended to reduce road danger from HGVs over 12 tonnes operating in London by requiring them to have a permit to operate, and to fit additional safety equipment where required. By coming under the 1985 Traffic Management Order the London Borough of Barnet will also be covered by the LLCS and HSP Scheme, thereby improving road safety and amenity in the borough. A copy of the proposed Order and the Council’s Statement of Reasons for proposing to make the Order can be inspected between 9am and 5pm on Mondays to Fridays inclusive for a period of 21 days from the date on which this notice is published at: a) Traffic and Development, Highways Section, London Borough of Barnet, 2 Bristol Avenue, Colindale NW9 4EW; or (b) Reception, Hendon Town Hall, The Burroughs, Hendon, London, NW4 4BG.
Further information on the proposals may be obtained by telephoning the Highways Section on 020 8359 3555. Any person wishing to object to the proposed Order should send a written statement explaining their objection to the Highways Section at the above address or via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org within 21 days of the date of this Notice. Dated 13th February 2020 Geoff Mee, Interim Executive Director (Environment) 2 Bristol Avenue, Colindale, London, NW9 4EW
