20mph Speed Restrictions - Consultation Feedback

 

20

Thank you to all those who took the time to participate in our recent public consultation about 20mph speed restrictions in parts of Marlborough. All responses have been collected and collated and brought together in a report which is available here.

At an Extraordinary Full Council meeting on 30 April, Town Councillors considered this feedback and voted in favour of recommending to Wiltshire Council's Community Area Transport Group (CATG) that 20mph speed restrictions are put in place in the full qualifying areas of Marlborough with the addition of 20mph roundels on St Martins and Kingsbury Street. This was in line with the overall outcome of the consultation exercise.

Wiltshire Council has opened a consultation around Road Traffic Regulation Orders on the introduction of parking charges for Sundays and Bank Holidays as well as changes to the cost of season tickets. We were all informed about this happening back in February and this is another chance to let the Unitary Authority have your views on it. Details of the changes are here. There is also a set of reasons behind the proposals here. General information about Traffic Order Consultations can be found here. The Town Council will be making a corporate response and it is important that others respond too.

The consultation runs to 21 May 2018. You can respond in writing to: Traffic Order Team, Highways and Transport, Wiltshire Council, County Hall, Trowbridge BA14 8JN; by email to trafficorders@wiltshire.gov.uk or use the online form, quoting WILTS/TRO/Parking.
