Approval of the Local Traffic Committee

Today’s article is in response to a question about the powers of the Local Traffic Committee.

The question is:

What does an approval from the Local Traffic Committee look like?

The answer is that the Local Traffic Committee is an advisory committee only and has no decision-making powers. It does not issue approvals.

Advice from the Local Traffic Committee must be one of the following outcomes:

  • unanimous support;
  • majority support;
  • split vote;
  • minority support; or
  • unanimous decline.

This outcome is then reported to the elected Council, or their sub-delegate, for approval. In some instances approval will be required from the Roads and Maritime Authority.
