Proposal for a Road Races (Amendment) Bill

Consultation opened on 01 July 2013. Closing date 07 October 2013.


Consultation on the department's policy and legislative proposals for a Bill to amend the Road Races (Northern Ireland) Order 1986 to provide race organisers with flexibility to introduce contingency arrangements where racing or practice may be affected by bad weather.


Consultation description

The bill seeks to provide race promoters with the flexibility to either bring forward up to 2 of their practice or race days or to defer them or to adjust the times on which roads are scheduled to be closed where, for example, weather forecasts indicate that racing would otherwise be comprised. These 'contingency days' would be identified by the promoters when making their application for a road closing order.
