Salford City Council - Record of Decision


I, Councillor Derek Antrobus, Lead Member for Planning and Sustainable Development, in exercise of the powers contained within the Council Constitution, do hereby authorise the making of the below mentioned Traffic Regulation Order:




The Reasons are:  

The Anti-Terrorism Traffic Regulation Order (ATTRO) is proposed in order to comply with a request from the Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police to potentially control the movement of pedestrians and vehicles on City streets as part of a package of measures aimed at improving the security of people in crowded places and protecting damage to buildings from a potential terrorist attack.

The Order would give to an officer of Greater Manchester Police of the rank of Inspector or above the power to restrict all or part of any City street at their discretion on the basis of a security assessment or intelligence of a threat. The discretion must be exercised in accordance with the Schedule and any agreed Protocol for the time being in force to ensure that any interference is proportionate and that such restrictions are for the minimum extent and for the minimum period necessary.


Assessment of Risk:

In considering the request for an ATTRO, regard has been given to the duty to act in accordance with the European Convention on Human Rights. In relation to possible restriction of access to property, any interference with Article 1 rights to enjoyment of property must be justified. Interference may be regarded as justified where it is lawful, pursues a legitimate purpose, is not discriminatory, and is necessary.

It must also strike a fair balance between the public interest and private rights affected (i.e. be proportionate). It is considered that the public interest in being protected by the existence and operation of the ATTRO outweighs any interference with private rights which is likely to occur when restrictions are in operation.

The scope of restrictions must be proportionate and should only last until the likelihood of danger or damage is removed or reduced sufficiently in the judgment of a senior police officer.

                 It is considered that the Schedule to the ATTRO will ensure that any interference is proportionate, and, given the risks to life and property which could arise if an incident occurred, and the opportunity provided by the ATTRO to remove or reduce the threat of and/or impacts of incidents, the ATTRO is considered to be justified and any resulting interference legitimate.


The source of funding is from – the Highways Block 3 Capital Allocation for other minor works, in the 2019/20 financial year.
