AA and Sons Ltd v Slough Borough Council

Road traffic – Regulation of traffic. The claimant supermarket operator applied for a statutory review in relation to traffic regulation orders (TROs) adopted by the defendant local authority in relation to four roads. Dismissing the application, the Administrative Court held that the authority had not acted unlawfully and had held an adequate consultation process. The authority had not failed to give proper reasons for making the TROs. Nor had it failed to give proper consideration to the desirability of providing access to premises or the issue of air quality. It had not failed to have regard to the fact the major works had been ongoing throughout the period that the TROs had been trialled and there had been no legitimate expectation that different options would be trialled. Finally, the suggestion that the authority had erred in failing to convene a public inquiry was misconceived
