Kingswood - New Horizons Learning Centre, Mulberry Drive. Proposed 20mph speed limit

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 20 mph speed limit. This approach is in line with guidance from the government, which is encouraging local authorities to introduce 20 mph speed limits or zones, in residential areas being used by people on foot or bicycle.


The purpose of the scheme is to reduce traffic speed in the vicinity of New Horizons Learning Centre, 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 reduce the speed limit from 30 mph to 20 mph in the vicinity of New Horizons Learning Centre.

The following roads are affected by this scheme:

  • Burnham Close
  • Burnham Drive
  • Chipperfield Drive
  • Cennick Avenue
  • Holly Crescent
  • Holly Hill Road
  • Hunters Drive
  • Mulberry Drive

Please see the consultation documents/drawings for more information.

The drawings showing the proposals are available directly via the links on this page or in the consultation documents section below.

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.
