Statement of Reasons
THE CHESHIRE WEST AND CHESTER BOROUGH COUNCIL (20MPH SPEED LIMIT) ORDER 2017
In January 2016 Cheshire West and Chester Council approved the implementation of 20mph speed limits on residential roads across the Borough where:
- Mean speeds are currently less than 24mph; and
- Around schools where the mean speed is currently less than 30mph
The Council has approved a capital budget to deliver a programme of signed only schemes over a period of four years.
In line with this approved programme a new length of 20mph speed limit is proposed on the roads in this area based upon enhancing road safety and reducing vehicular speeds through the area. The proposal for a 20 mph speed limit meets abovementioned criteria and both the Department for Transport and Cheshire West and Chester Council criteria. The Police, Parish Council and local CWAC Members have been consulted on the proposed 20 mph speed limit and no objections have been received to the recommendation
