Poole Quay Traffic Regulation Order

The Poole Quay Experimental Traffic Regulation Order (ETRO) was one of several trial active travel measures trialled in 2020. Funded by Government's tranche 1 active travel fund, they form part of a wider effort to support and encourage walking and cycling as well as creating a welcoming outdoor environment.

Following a six-month public consultation and discussions with the business community, the council will progress with plans to keep the Poole Quay enhanced walking and cycling measures in place over the summer and remove them during winter.

From 1 April to 31 October - 10am to 10pm, the following areas will be closed to motor vehicles:

  • The Quay (between Thames Street and the mini roundabout at the end of Old Orchard).
  • High Street (from the junction with Castle Street down to The Quay).
  • Castle Street (the first 15 metres north of the Quay).
  • Paradise Street.

Parking be permitted at night in existing bays between 10pm and 10am. From 1 November to 31 March roads will be open to all traffic with parking permitted in existing bays.

The permanent traffic order for the road closures during the times listed above has been made and is effective from 13 September. The decision regarding changes to parking restriction remains subject to Traffic Regulation Orders (TRO), including a statutory consultation process/public notice, which BCP Council intends to complete by 1 November 2021. Until that time only loading/unloading can take place between 10pm and 10am.
