Philip Brown, the Senior Traffic Commissioner and the Traffic Commissioner for the South Eastern and Metropolitan Traffic Area, will retire with effect from October 2.

He took up his additional appointment of Senior Traffic Commissioner in March 2003 and transferred to the South Eastern and Metropolitan Area in May 2007. In November 2008 he was appointed the first Statutory Senior Traffic Commissioner.
