Decision details

Burford A361 - Experimental Traffic Regulation Order (ETRO)

Decision Maker: Witney Traffic Advisory

Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Committee had received an update on the Burford A361 ETRO scheme through public participation which was reiterated by the Chair.


Members heard the County Council had agreed to continue with the Order until January 2022 and were engaging with parishes and gathering as much data as possible to make an informed decision at that time. Further information was needed on air quality, which was already poor in the Bridge Street area. Upcoming traffic surveys, with traffic nearing pre-covid levels, might offer more evidence.


The Committee agreed that the interim data in June had shown an impact on areas of Witney and it re-affirmed its earlier resolution to continue asking that the order be withdrawn and alternative options explored.




1.      That, the update on the Burford A361 ETRO be noted, and


2.      That, Witney Traffic Advisory Committee supports the cessation of the order at the earliest opportunity, and


3.      That, Witney Town Council considers re-affirming support for the Windrush Valley Traffic Action Group through its committee process.
