EASTER COMPTON and PILNING – Various Roads – Proposed 20 mph Speed Limit and 40 mph Speed Limit Order – STATUTORY NOTICE

The Council proposes to make an order to introduce a 20 mph speed limit various lengths of road in Easter Compton and Pilning and reduce the 50 mph speed limit currently in B4055 Marsh Common Road to a 40 mph speed limit.

Full details of the proposal, together with a plan and a statement of the Council's reasons for proposing to install the measures can be seen in the documents section below and have also been deposited at Easter Compton Post Office and Patchway One Stop Shop and may be seen free of charge during normal opening hours.

On 14 November 2019 the Director of Environment 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 member and officers see value in progressing the speed limits and road humps. It is therefore recommended that the proposed road humps and speed limits in Easter Compton & Pilning should be implemented as advertised.
  2. That the Head of Legal Governance and Democratic Services be authorised to seal the Traffic Regulation Orders.
  3. That the objectors are informed accordingly.

The Director of Environment and Community Services Decision relating to this matter may viewed online at www.southglos.gov.uk. 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 will be made in due course.  Accordingly, a public notice will appear in the local newspaper shortly after the order is made.

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.
