Oxfordshire County Council 20mph consultation
We have just received formal notification from OCC about the creation of a Traffic Regulation Order to reduce the speed of traffic in the built up areas in Aston, Cote and Bampton from 30mph to 20 mph. Please follow the link if you wish to make comment to OCC either in support or against the speed reduction. The survey closes on the 19th August.
Update on introduction of possible 20mph speed limit in Bampton
Since Bampton Parish Council (BPC) sought the views of residents during February 2022 about the possible introduction of a 20mph limit, the decision has been made to go ahead with the change and this has been confirmed with Oxfordshire County Council who are the highways authority. They will fund this alteration to the speed limit within the built-up area but currently there is no timescale for the change.
