Oxfordshire County Council wants to make our built environments safer and more attractive places to walk and cycle. To enable this, 20mph speed restrictions are being used to help promote alternative modes of transport for local travel. Further details on how the council is considering making 20mph the new 30mph for Oxfordshire communities can be found here.
We’re therefore asking for your views on the proposal to introduce a 20mph speed limit throughout Kidmore End, replacing the majority of the existing 30mph speed limit within the residential areas of Cane End, Chalkhouse Green, and Gallowstree Common in the process. Sections of existing 30mph speed limit will remain in place on Hazelmoor Lane, Reades Lane (within the parish of Sonning Common) & Wood Lane as buffer limits, with Officers having taken the current road environment & traffic usage into account.
The proposals are being put forward following road safety concerns raised by the parish, and form part of a countywide programme of works that seeks to deliver ‘a safer place with a safer pace‘ for the residents of Oxfordshire. In light of this, please find the following consultation documents attached:
- Public Notice,
- Statement of Reasons,
- Consultation Plan(s), Cane End, Chalkhouse Green and Gallowstree Common
- Draft Traffic Regulation Order.
The proposed Traffic Regulation Order is scheduled to be advertised in the Henley Standard newspaper today; Friday 14th April 2023, and details are also available to view on the Councils consultation portal at the address below:
As stated on the notice, any objections or other representations on the proposal should be submitted by Friday 12th May 2023.
