Decision published: 07/09/2021

Effective from: 15/09/2021

Decision:

The Local Committee (Waverley) resolved to AGREE to:

 

  1. Note the results of the speed assessments undertaken to inform the development of the 20 mph proposals, as included in Section 2.
  2. Agree that a 20 mph speed limit is implemented on the roads shown within Figures 1-3 in Annex A, in accordance with Option 1 (see section “3. Options”).  Subject to agreement with the Waverley Heritage officers and further consultation with Town and other relevant Borough and County councillors on the final design.
  3. Authorise the advertisement of a notice in accordance with the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, the effect of which will be to implement the proposed speed limit change, including revocation of any existing traffic orders necessary to implement the change, and, subject to no objections being upheld, that the order be made.
  4. Authorise a delegation of authority to the Area Highway Manager, in consultation with the Chairman, Vice-Chairman of the Local Committee and the local divisional member to resolve any objections received in connection with the proposal.
  5. Note that if the scheme has not been successful in reducing actual vehicle speeds, then further engineering measures or a return to the current posted speed limit may be necessary.
  6. If the scheme is not successful in contributing to improvement in air quality then further measures may need to be considered.
  7. Further extensions to the 20mph limit/zone maybe considered following further consultation.

 

Reason:

To enable the changes to the posted speed limit from 30 mph to 20 mph, on the roads identified within Figures 1-3 in Annex A, in accordance with Surrey County Council’s Speed Limit Policy.

The proposed lower 20 mph speed limit on these roads will contribute to improved road safety for all users and an improved environment for active travel within the area, encouraging more short trips to be made by modes such as walking and cycling.

The proposed extent of 20 mph speed limit on these roads has been identified to provide consistency of speed limit and align the proposals with best practice to contribute to an effective positive change of character and improved accessibility throughout the respective areas.
