a) prohibit the driving of motor vehicles at a speed exceeding 20 miles per hour in lengths of Avon Crescent, B4059 The Downs, B4060 Station Road, B4060 Sodbury Road (also known as High Street), Back Lane, Buthay Lane, Chase Lane, Cotswold View, Honeybourne Way, Inglestone Road, North Street, The Buthay and Turnpike Gate Wickwar;

 b) revoke the The South Gloucestershire Council (Various Roads Wickwar) (20 mph Speed Limit) Order 2016; and

c) vary the South Gloucestershire Council (Various Roads, Wickwar) (Restricted Roads) (40 mph Speed Limit) Order 1998 in so far as it relates to B4059 The Downs, B4060 Station Road and B4060 Sodbury Road so as to substitute those lengths of road.

Full details of the proposals are contained in the draft order. If you would like to see a copy of the draft order, a map, any orders to be varied/revoked and a statement of the Council's reasons for making the order, you may do so by viewing the documents section of this consultation.

Consultation Topic
  • Local highways and transportation projects
Geographical area
  • Chipping Sodbury and Cotswold Edge
Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
