49 Planned closure of road


The Commissioner may close all, or part, of a road for all or any part of a day or days during the leaders’ event period if the Commissioner reasonably believes the closure is required to prevent a risk to security at, or near, a leaders’ event or near a protected person.


The Commissioner may take into account, as a secondary reason for the closure, that the closure would ensure only accredited or permitted people enter or remain in the road.


Before closing the road, the Commissioner—


must consult the road controlling authority; and


may consult any persons the Commissioner considers are directly affected more than the public generally; and


need not consult anyone else.
