Citywide Road Events Team

The Citywide Road Events Team is responsible for facilitating events that take place on or affect the public highway. This includes giving permission to use a certain part of the public highway, ensuring 'events' are co-ordinated with any other works taking place on the public highway. When necessary a Temporary Traffic Regulation Order (TTRO) is issued to allow the event to take place. A TTRO would be necessary to close any roads or to suspend parking etc.

To apply for a TTRO for an event (includes Edinburgh Play Streets), please complete the application form.
