Various Roads (Chesterton) Proposed 20mph & 40mph Speed Limits

Oxfordshire County Council is proposing to introduce a 20mph speed limit in the centre of Chesterton village, and also introduce ‘buffer’ 40mph speed limits on the village approaches. The proposals which are being put forward following road safety concerns raised by the Parish Council comprise of the following measures:

  • Introduce a 20mph speed limit replacing the existing 30mph speed limit on the main village roads, leading out to:
    • Alchester Road - at its junction with the A4095,
    • Green Lane - a point 98.5 metres west of its junction with Vespasian Way, and
    • The Green (towards Wendlebury) - to a point 73 metres south of its junction with Green Lane.
  • a 40mph speed limit in place of the existing 30mph & 60mph National Speed Limits on:
    • Green Lane - from a point 98.2 metres west of its junction with Vespasian Way westwards for a distance of 505 metres, and
      The Hale - from its junction with Green Lane, northwards for a distance of 301 metres.

Objections to the proposals and other representations, specifying the grounds on which they are made, may be sent in by completing the online questionnaire, via email or in writing (quoting ref: CM/12.6.161) to the address below by 13 August. The Council will consider objections and representations received in response and they may be disseminated widely for these purposes and made available to the public.

Any unresolved objections will be reported to the Council’s Cabinet meeting later in 2021 (the Forward Plan of decisions meetings can be viewed here). The papers for the meeting will be available on the County Council’s website about a week before the meeting.

Please read the information provided on this consultation. Your views and opinions matter. Please take the time to respond.
