Local Traffic Committee

Traffic Committee Information

​​​The NSW Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) is responsible for the control of traffic on all roads in NSW. Coffs Harbour Council has delegated authority to manage most regulatory signage on local roads. The Local Traffic Committee provides advice and technical recommendations to assist Council in the decision making process. The recommendations are based on current guidelines and standards as well as community input.​

They have four formal voting members:

  • Council representative

  • NSW Police

  • RMS

  • Local State Member of Parliament or their nominee.

Several informal advisors also attend the Committee including Council officers and community stakeholders.

The committee addresses road safety, traffic​, parking related matters as well as traffic management plans for events, on a bi-monthly basis.

Traffic Management for Local Events

If you are organising a special event that has the potential to affect traffic or transport, you may have to submit a Traffic Management Plan (TMP) to the Local Traffic Committee to manage the risks and have your event approved.

For detailed information on road closures and traffic management head to the Coffs Coast Events website or see the Traffic Management Plan ​template provided by the RMS.

Submissions can be directed to the committee via email.​
