On an intiative by our County Councillor, Dr Pete Sudbury, the County Council has passed a motion to support 20mph limits in built-up areas across the county.
Speaking at last week’s Parish Council meeting Dr Sudbury said: “This should mean that parish, town and city councils will be supported in reducing speed limits where requested by local residents. Where funding from any sources is available, speed reduction schemes will be supported to put in speed calming measures.”
Dr Sudbury said that he will now try to streamline the implementation process for villages such as Long Wittenham.
The Parish Council has also pleadged support for 20’s Plenty for Oxfordshire, a county-wide campaign for 20mph mandatory speed limits where pedestrians and cyclists mix with vehicles. The campaign already has the support of more than thirty villages, towns and local communities.
20’s Plenty for Oxfordshire is part of a national 20’s Plenty for Us campaign.
