  • Thank you for your enquiry relating to speed of traffic and your request for a review of the current restriction. All requests for a change of speed limit or, as in this case a request for a limit, are referred to our Speed Limit Review Panel for consideration. The panel includes various officers from our Road Safety and Traffic Engineering Teams, the local Community Liaison Officer and a representative from the Police‚Äôs Safer Roads Team who has delegated authority from the Chief Constable with regard to agreeing changes to speed limits. Requests are considered by the group taking into account any comments raised, the general characteristics and layout of the area, in addition to speed and collision data. With this in mind, we recommend seeking the support of the Parish Council who will then make further representations to highways on your behalf.
