Longwell Green Primary School, proposed part-time advisory 20mph speed limit

Someone filling in a questionnaire

South Gloucestershire Council made a resolution in September 2013 to ensure that, as far as practicable, all schools in South Gloucestershire are covered by a 20mph speed limit. This approach is in line with guidance from the Government, which is encouraging local authorities to introduce 20mph speed limits or zones in residential areas being used by people on foot or bicycle.

The purpose of the scheme is to reduce traffic speeds in the vicinity of Longwell Green Primary School which will improve road safety for vulnerable road users as well as making walking and cycling to school more attractive.

The proposed scheme is to introduce a part time advisory 20mph speed limit along part of Ellacombe Road in the vicinity of the school.

We are proposing to install four advisory 20mph when lights show signs on Ellacombe Road, Pearsall Road and Stanhope Road .

Please see the consultation documents/drawings for more information.

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.
