The Council proposes to make an order to introduce a 30 mph speed limit that will include the following roads in the Bitton, Boyd Valley and Oldland Common areas: –

Aubrey Meads, Baron Close, Barrow Hill, Beach Hill, Beach Lane, Brewery Hill, Court Lane, Golden Valley Lane, Grandmothers Rock Lane, Kites Farm Lane, Lansdown Lane, Manor Road, Marshfield Lane, Mill Lane, Newpit Lane, North Stoke Lane, Oldbury Lane, Redfield Hill, Rose and Crown Lane, The Green, Wick Lane and Wilmots Lane.

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 Kingswood Public Library and Kingswood One Stop Shop where they may be inspected, free of charge, during normal  opening hours.

The statutory notice period for this proposal has now ended.  No correspondence was received that can be considered as an objection to the scheme.  The scheme will therefore be implemented as advertised.

The order has therefore been made on 9 October 2017 and will become operative on 4 December 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 Bitton, Boyd Valley, Oldland Common
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
