Decision status: Recommendations approved

Is Key decision?: Yes


The Cabinet Member for Planning and Transportation has agreed the following:-


·         From 2013, all requests for changes to speed limits will, (with the exception of a few legal anomalies and other specified speed limits as detailed in this Report), be funded either:-

ú                      directly by individual Parish/Town Councils, or

ú                      by a  Local Area Forum via  the Local Priorities Budget process ,or

ú                      from independent sources or

ú                     as part of a casualty reduction scheme

ú                     or a Section 106 develop funded agreement

·         Key Decision T08.10 (Area 4), (Background Paper 3), is superseded by this Report and therefore its recommendation to implement follow-up limits in Area 4 will no longer apply.


·         There will be a formal application process and fee to manage and evaluate requests for speed limit changes. This will include 20mph speed limits and Quiet Lane proposals.


·         Irrespective of the funding source, requests for speed limit changes will only be consulted upon and implemented if they comply with the National guidance on setting speed limits.


·         This policy should be reviewed within 3 years of the publication of this Report.
