Decision details

HTW-14-21 - B3107 Holt to Melksham - Proposed Speed Limit Changes

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Highways, Transport and Waste

Decision status: Recommendations Approved (subject to call-in)

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


To consider the comments received following the formal advertisement of proposed changes to the speed limits on the B3107 between Holt and Melksham and recommend an appropriate way forward.






I approve that:


(i)              The proposal be implemented as advertised.


(ii)             The commentors be informed accordingly.



               This decision was published on 14 April 2021 and will come into force           on 22 April 2021.    


Reasons for the decision:

The proposed limit meets the criteria set by Wiltshire Council policy and the guidance given by the Department for Transport.  The alternative suggested by the Parish Council does not do this.


Alternative options considered:



(i)              Implement the proposals as advertised


(ii)             Implement the proposals as advertised with amendment.


(iii)            Abandon the proposals.


Other reasons / organisations consulted

During the formal consultation period two items of correspondence were received in response to the advertised Traffic Regulation Order (TRO).  Of these items one expressed support for the Council’s proposals and one objected to the proposal in its current form.
