To ask Her Majesty's Government whether the obligation to consult on planned traffic and road measures which affect public access to an amenity is different or wider than in cases affecting those living or driving in a residential street; and whether that obligation explicitly includes consultation with users who may come from outside the borough in which the amenity lies.

The consultation requirements for measures that affect access to an amenity or access to a residential street are the same. There is no requirement to consult users of amenities directly, although there is to consult operators of tram cars and local bus routes affected by the proposed measures. Where the measures are to be permanent, there is an obligation to consult "organisations (if any) representing persons likely to be affected by any provision in the order as the order making authority thinks it appropriate to consult".
