TOCKINGTON – Washingpool Hill Road – Proposed 30 mph Speed Limit Order – STATUTORY NOTICE

South Gloucestershire Council proposes to make an order to introduce a 30 mph speed limit along a length of Washingpool Hill Road near Tockington.

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 Filton Public Library where they may be inspected, free of charge, during normal library opening hours.

The statutory period during which objections may be made to the proposed order has now closed. 

A report enabling the Planning, Transportation and Strategic Environment Committee, acting under delegated authority, to consider objections and comments received in response to the advertisement of the above proposed traffic order was considered on 20 June 2018. After carefully considering these objections together with the comments the following decision was taken:

1.        Both the local member and officers see value in progressing the proposed speed limit. It is therefore recommended that the proposed 30mph speed limit on Washingpool Hill/Washingpool Hill Road should be implemented as advertised. 

  1. That the Head of Legal Governance and Democratic Services be authorised to seal the Traffic Regulation Orders. 
  2. That the objectors are informed accordingly.

The reasons for the decision are contained in the report that may be found in the documents list above. 

The order was made on 20 December 2018 and will become operative on 3 January 2019. A public notice will appear in the local newspaper shortly.

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
