From Oxon CC, 27 June:

CONSULTATION – Sibford Gower proposed 20mph Speed Limits

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 Sibford Gower, replacing the existing 30mph speed limit in its entirety in the process. The proposals are being put forward following concerns raised by the parish over road safety, and form 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 Banbury Guardian newspaper today; Thursday 27th June 2024, and details are also available to view on the Councils consultation portal at the address below:

As stated on the notice, any objections or other representations on the proposal should be submitted by Friday 19th July 2024.
