Colthrop, Thatcham: Revocation of 40mph

Statutory consultation for the revocation of 40mph speed limit


This consultation is closed.


This proposal was approved at the Speed Limit Review on 9 October 2019 and we would like your views on it. The proposed order is necessary in the interests of road safety in order to provide a consistent and formalised speed limit on the roads through Colthrop. By revoking the current 40mph speed limit, the legal speed limit will default to 30mph by virtue of existing street lighting. Article 3 of the pdf icon existing order [91kb] will be revoked in its entirety.  

 A pdf icon plan of the proposal [216kb] is a available, along with a copy of the pdf icon consultation [286kb].  If objections are received, they will be investigated and a report prepared for the Executive Member for Highways and Transport to consider what action to take under Individual Decision and whether to proceed with the proposal as advertised. 

You can comment or object to the proposals by completing the doc icon comment form [235kb] and returning it to the Traffic and Road Safety Team by 18 February 2021.
