Please note, that the consultation in relation to a 20mph zone in Great Coxwell is expected in 2023, but OCC have decided to combine Little Coxwell and Great Coxwell speed limits into one Schedule. For that reason Great Coxwell remains at 30mph in the Schedule attached by OCC for the purposes of Little Coxwell's consultation on speed limits.
Great Coxwell Parish Council
CONSULTATION – Little Coxwell proposed 20mph Speed Limit
Oxfordshire County Council wants to make our built environments safer and more attractive places to walk and cycle. To enable this, 20mph speed restrictions are being used to help promote alternative modes of transport for local travel. Further details on how the council is considering making 20mph the new 30mph for Oxfordshire communities can be found here.
We're therefore asking for your views on the proposal to introduce a 20mph speed limit throughout Little Coxwell, replacing the current unrestricted national speed limit in its entirety, leading out of the village to its junction with Fernham Road. Additionally, a 40mph speed limit ‘buffer’ will be introduced on the Fernham Road, either side of the junction with the access to the village - replacing the existing 60mph national speed limit in the process. The proposals are being put forward following road safety concerns raised by the parish, and are part of a countywide programme of works that seeks to deliver ‘a safer place with a safer pace’ for the residents of Oxfordshire. In light of this, please find the following consultation documents attached:
The proposed Traffic Regulation Order is scheduled to be advertised in the Oxford Times newspaper today; Thursday 03rd November 2022, and details are also available to view on the Councils consultation portal at the address below:
