Name of Petitioner - Cllr Janet Eagland
I refer to the petition, signed by local residents, regarding a request for a 20 mph speed limits on all the roads within the Cathedral View and Roman Heights housing developments. I can advise you that receipt of the petition will be reported to Cllr Helen Fisher, Cabinet Member for Highways & Transport.
The roads on the aforementioned developments are not currently classed as Highways Maintainable at Public Expense (HMPE), i.e. they are not yet public highway and are not maintained by the council. Once the developments have been completed and the highway infrastructure has been inspected to ensure it complies to appropriate standards, the council will adopt the roads and they will become part of the public highway network.
Once the roads are classed as public highway, the council can consider the implementation of a 20 mph speed limit on the developments.
Should you require further information regarding your petition please contact Tim Heminsley (Strategic Community Infrastructure Manager) via email@example.com.
