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.
