Lodge Lane parking enforcement

6 November 2018
Thurrock Council is in the process of reviewing the traffic regulation order in Lodge Lane.
The review will consider resident requests and feedback in line with legislation, with the safety of the road being priority. It is expected that findings from this review will be reported in the next 2 weeks.
Following a refresh of the yellow lines in the road several months ago, Civil Enforcement Officers have been enforcing a Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) that has been in place for many years and pre-dated decriminalisation in 2005.
