Welcome to Community TM
Community Traffic Management Ltd (CTM) is a dynamic and progressive events traffic management company. The original concept behind our formation remains true to this day, that we specifically aim to work with and for community, sporting and charity bodies to facilitate all types of highway-based events.
We guarantee highly competitive rates for charity and community events, which makes even the most modest of events affordable and viable, without compromising on safety.
Founded in 2011 by retired police officer Rich Houghton and joined by former colleague, Paul Johnson in 2012. From very modest beginnings and aspirations, CTM have swiftly evolved into a dynamic company, specialising in handling the more challenging and diverse aspects of event traffic management.
The Company has grown at a fast pace, both in turns of employees and turnover. From an initial pool of 7 Chapter 8 Operatives, we now have 40+ on our books. We do not advertise or promote the Company, this growth has been organic, with most enquiries coming from receommendations within the sporting & events communities. In the financial years 2017-18 & 2018-19 we have worked on some 200 separate events annually.
As we have grown in size, experience & capacity, we have been able to plan for and accomodate increasingly large-scale events. In particular, we are fast developing a genuine expertise in the planning for and subsequent traffic management of sports events, up to and including professional, televised cycle races. We now have a wealth of experience and expertise in cycle road races and the cycle stages of triathlons. We have designed and manage a number of road run courses, ranging in length from ‘Fun Run’ to Half Marathon.
This has led to ongoing professional links with the Tour de Yorkshire, British Cycling (Yorkshire & North East), Velo 29 and RaceBest.
2019 has seen us as the traffic management and parking contractors for BBC Countryfile Live 'North' @ Castle Howard (August. 60,000 + over four days) We are also playing an integral role, training and supervising an army of Tour de Yorkshire volunteers (Junction Managers) on the UCI World Cycling Championships based out of Harrogate (Sept 2019)
The service we provide is very much ‘all inclusive’. An element that event organisers particularly appreciate, is the fact that we carry out all planning and negotiations with Highways and the Police, on your behalf. On the day of your event, we will brief your stewards / marshals, in order to fully prepare them and integrate them into our Team.
Together with traffic management, we now offer a variety of additional event-specific services:
- Risk assessment preparation by a qualified NEBOSH practitioner
- Parking Stewards for large-scale events
- Steward and marshalling services (majority of stewards are ex-police)
- Event / Venue traffic plans (criterium races, motorsport event on Oliver’s Mount)
- Parking suspensions
