ALVESTON - STRODE COMMON - Proposed 30 mph and 40 mph Speed Limit - STATUTORY NOTICE

The Council proposes to make an order that will reduce the speed limit on a length of Strode Common, Alveston.  One section will reduce to 30 mph and another section will reduce to 40 mph.

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 Alveston Post Office where they may be inspected, free of charge, during normal opening hours.

On 8 October 2018 the Director of Environment, Planning and Community Services acting under Delegated Authority considered the objections and comments received in response to the advertisement of the above proposed traffic order. After carefully considering these objections together with the comments the following decision was taken:

  1. Both the local members and officers see value in progressing the proposed speed limits. It is therefore recommended that the proposed speed limits on Strode Common, Alveston and Olveston should be implemented as advertised
  2. That the Head of Legal Governance and Democratic Services be authorised to seal the Traffic Regulation Order
  3. That the objectors are informed accordingly.

The Director of Environment and Community Services Decision relating to this matter may viewed online at The reasons for the decision are contained in the Director’s Report, a copy of which may be obtained by contacting 01454 868004.

The order is to be made on 7 January 2019 and will become operative on 21 January 2019.   Accordingly, a public notice will appear in the local newspaper shortly after the order is made.

Consultation Topic
  • Local highways and transportation projects
Geographical area
  • Severn
  • Thornbury South and Alveston
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
