My question relates to a proposed closure of roads weekend

This answer was rated:

Hi,My question relates to a proposed closure of roads for a weekend musical festival in my local borough of Havering. Some of the roads will not be accessible to local residents but are to be used for the festival goers to gain access. The festival site is on a private 100 acre aerodrome. No part of the festival will take place on the road.I have a copy of the Traffic Order in PDF format and am happy to send it to you if there is a means to do so.They are using the following legislation:
Section 16A of the Road Traffic Regulations Act 1984 (RTRA) as amended by the Road Traffic Regulation (Special Events) Act 1994
THE HAVERING SPECIAL EVENT 'WE ARE FSTVL 2016' OrderMy question is this:
From my reading of this legislation this section of the act is to be used for events taking place on the road itself.
Can it be used to close roads around a private event which takes place on private land?
