Statutory Notices of Traffic Regulation Orders


NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Three Rivers District Council, acting as agents for the Hertfordshire County Council and after consultation with the Chief Officer of Police has made in part the above-named Order under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984. 

Full details of this Order, together with plans and a statement of reasons, can be examined during normal opening hours at the Council’s offices in Rickmansworth (visit this page for further details).

The Order is only partially made because, in response to objections received at the formal consultation stage, the District Council has determined that the Order will not include the proposal to provide a long-stay service in the Northway (lower deck) car park or a short-stay service in the Talbot Road (High Street) car park.

The effects of this Order are to implement decisions taken by the District Council to introduce 1 hour of free parking in eight parking places in Rickmansworth (with two hours for £1), changing these car parks to 4-hour maximum stay, including:

  • Northway multi-storey Car Park, Upper and Lower decks
  • Three Rivers House Rose Garden Car Park
  • Three Rivers House Staff Car Park Upper and Lower decks (Saturdays only)
  • Talbot Road Car Park 'A' (West of 9 Talbot Road)
  • Bury Lane Car Park (ten spaces)
  • Ebury Road Car Park

The Order introduces charges for parking for longer in those car parks, at:

  • £1 for the second hour
  • £2.50 for up to 3 hours 
  • £4 for up to 4 hours

The new parking payment mechanisms will not accept the use of cash but will accept payment cards.

For general enquiries about this order, please contact the Regulatory Services team by email at or by telephone on 01923 776611. 

Any person wishing to question the validity of this Order or any provision contained within it on the grounds that it is not within the powers conferred by the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 or on the grounds that any requirement of the Act or any instrument made under it has not been complied with in relation to that order, may apply to the High Court for this purpose within six weeks of the date on which the order was made (5th April 2018).
