20mph Speed Limit Petitions for Sovereign Park and Dodsworth Avenue

Decision Maker: Decision Session - Executive Member for City Strategy

Decision status: Decision Made (subject to call-in)

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


Purpose of report: Two petitions have been received requesting the introduction of 20mph speed limits (without traffic calming). The report considers the criteria against which implementation of a 20mph speed limit could be introduced, provides a response to those requests and includes a table which shows how they have been prioritised against all the requests and petitions that have been received.

Members are asked to: Approve the recommendations included in the report.


RESOLVED: The Executive Member for City Strategy agrees to:

i) Note the relative priority of the petitions set out in the table (annex A of the report) in relation to other petitions and requests received.

ii) No further action being taken at the current time in relation to Sovereign Park but that it is retained on the list for possible implementation when higher priorities have been addressed and resources become available.

iii) Note that Dodsworth Avenue is currently being considered through the speed review process, requests officers to provide an update on progress at a future Executive Member Decision Session and to update residents on the progress being made by including a briefing note in the next Heworth Ward Committee newsletter.


REASON:                  To progress requests and petitions against the agreed criteria and in priority order and to enable those requests that do not comply with key elements of the criteria to be considered through other processes.
