The Local Traffic Committee has no decision-making powers. The LTC is primarily a technical review committee, which is required to advise the Council on matters referred to it by Council. These matters must be related to prescribed traffic control devices and traffic control facilities for which Council has delegated authority.
The LTC should consider the technical merits of the proposal and ensure that the proposal meets current technical guidelines.
The Council must refer all traffic related matters to the LTC prior to exercising its delegated functions. Matters related to classified roads or functions that have not been delegated to the elected Council must be referred directly to the RTA or relevant organisation. Such matters must not be referred to the LTC. However, the RTA will generally seek the views of the Council on classified road traffic issues via the informal items process.
A Council is not bound by the advice of its Local Traffic Committee.
The LTC is to be made up of four formal members. The members are as follows:-
One representative of Council One representative of the NSW Police One representative of the RTA The local State Member of Parliament (MP) or their nominee.
