SOUNDWELL - VARIOUS ROADS SOUNDWELL - Proposed 20 MPH Speed Limit St Stephen's School area - STATUTORY NOTICE

The Council proposes to make an order to introduce a 20 mph speed limit that will include the following roads in Soundwell: –

Crown Road (part), Hill View, Hilltop Gardens, Hilltop Road (part), Lansdown Road (part), Nympsfield, St Stephen's Road, Spring Hill (part), Sweets Road (part)

Full details of the proposal, together with a plan, a statement of the Council's reasons for making the order, a copy of the draft order, and any order(s) to be varied or revoked have been deposited at Staple Hill Public Library and Kingswood One Stop Shop where they may be inspected, free of charge, during normal  opening hours.

The statutory period during which objections may be made to the proposed order closed on 13 April 2017 during which time this Council received one letter in support of the proposed speed limit order. No other responses were received.

The order was therefore made on 13 June 2017 and will become operative on 21 August 2017.  Accordingly, a notice will appear in the Press shortly after the order has been made.

Consultation Topic Local highways and transportation projects
Geographical area Kings Chase
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.
Target Audience All residents, General public
