Is subject to call in?: Yes




(i)               Consider the objections received to the advertised proposal for a 20-mph speed limit and traffic calming features along Church Lane in Wingfield. 


(ii)              Recommend the making of the Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) to implement the 20-mph speed limit but to defer the introduction of the physical traffic calming features.


I approve that:


(i)               The 20-mph speed restriction be implemented as advertised.


(ii)              The physical traffic calming measures not be progressed.

After consideration of the correspondence received alongside the officer’s comments it is considered appropriate to introduce the 20-mph speed limit but to defer the introduction of the physical traffic calming measures.


Alternative options considered:
