On 14 August 2020 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 members and officers see value in progressing the proposed 20 mph speed limit. It is therefore recommended that the proposed 20 mph speed limit on North Road and the surrounding area 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 in the documents section of this consultation.

The order will be made on 30 September 2020 and will be operative from 9 October 2020.  A Notice will be advertised in the press 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.
