MORAY COUNCIL (SCHOOL STREETS, ELGIN) (PROHIBITION OF DRIVING) ORDER 2022
Moray Council propose to make the above Order under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 as amended. The general effect of the Order which will come into operation on 16/09/22 will be to introduce “Prohibition of Driving Restrictions” on roads around Seafield and New Elgin Primary Schools to vehicles during set times when pupils are being dropped off and collected, which will significantly reduce vehicular traffic adjacent to the Schools when there is an increase in pedestrian movement.

The permanent Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) will continue to improve road safety and air quality in the immediate vicinity of Seafield and New Elgin Primary Schools and encourage Active Travel.
