From April 2023, streets cannot be traffic-sensitive if:

  • Designated for winter maintenance
  • On a tourist route or near major events
  • Subject to congestion charge
Traffic Sensitivity Review Services

Authorities must review existing designations and assess the need for traffic-sensitive designation. GeoPlace offers Traffic Sensitive Reviews, leveraging NSG and utility sector relationships to streamline implementation in line with best practice guidance from GeoPlace and JAG(UK).

The NRSWA Code of practice advises that the network should be reviewed every 3 years. JAG(UK) and GeoPlace can provide a service from initial identification of streets that are traffic sensitive, to consulting with all relevant stakeholders.

What we can do for you

• Identify sources of data needed to undertake a review
• Data matching to help identify relevant criteria applicable to streets
• Create outputs suitable for internal review and consultation packs for relevant stakeholders
• Oversee the statutory consultation
• Update DTF files to reflect the new network
