Consultation – 20 mph!

The Welsh Government has announced that 20mph legislation will figure in this year’s legislative programme.

The public consultation on changing the default speed limit on residential streets from 30mph to 20mph is now open until 1st October 2021.  I know I have discussed this with many of you previously and the Council will be submitting a response.

You can find the public consultation here: https://gov.wales/proposal-reduce-speed-limit-20mph-residential-streets

One thought on “Consultation – 20 mph!

  1. Traffic calming needs to be in place to enable effective speed restrictions to be effective. There is already a 30 mile restriction but it is not enough. At Athens is much busier now with the new Supermarket and new housing developments.
