1. Notice is hereby given that the Council of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea on 11 February 2005, made the Kensington and Chelsea (Bus Priority) (No 1) Experimental Traffic Order 2005, under sections 9 and 10(2) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, as amended. 2. The general effect of this Order would be to experimentally amend the Kensington and Chelsea (Bus Priority) Order 1999, so as to remove the existing southbound Bus Lane in Beaufort Street, and to reduce in length by 110 metres, the north-eastbound Bus Lane in King’s Road located between its junctions with Shalcomb Street and Beaufort Street. This scheme is being progressed by way of an experiment to allow the Royal Borough’s Officers to monitor its effect on bus journey times and make alterations if necessary. 3. The Order will come into operation on 28 February 2005, and may continue in operation for up to 18 months. 4. A copy of the Order and of documents giving more detailed particulars of the Order are available for inspection at the Town Hall, Hornton Street, London W8 7NX, during normal office hours on Mondays to Fridays inclusive, until the Order ceases to have effect. 5. The Council will be considering in due course whether the provisions of the Order should be continued indefinitely by means of an Order made under section 6 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984. Any person may object to the making of this Order for the purpose of such indefinite continuation within a period of 6 months beginning with the day on which the Order comes into operation, or, if the Order is varied by other Orders or modified pursuant to section 10(2) of the 1984 Act, beginning with the day on which the variation or modification or the latest variation or modification came into operation. Any such objection must be in writing and must state the grounds on which it is made and be sent to the Council’s agents in this matter, the Project Centre, Saffron Court, 14 b St Cross Street, London EC1N 8XA, quoting Ref PCL/TMO/RDH/3221170122, by 11 July 2005. 6. Under the Local Government (Access to Information) Act 1985, any letter you write in response to this notice may be made available to the press and to the public, who would be entitled to take copies of it if they so wished. 7. If any person wishes to question the validity of the Order or of any of its provisions on the grounds that it is not within the powers conferred by the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, or that any requirement of that Act or of any Instrument made under that Act has not been complied with, that person may, within 6 weeks from the date on which the Order is made, apply for the purpose to the High Court.
