Local democracy during coronavirus

During coronavirus, we've made some changes to how we're running council meetings. See our coronavirus updates for more information on meetings and decisions.

Issue details

20 mph Speed Limits

Purpose of report: This report is in two parts. It is written to provide members with an update in relation to the council decision (taken on 14th July) to implement a 20mph trial site in the Fishergate area and in response to a petition for York to become a 20mph city. The petition requests that traffic regulation orders are made for all residential streets in York to become 20mph streets, without the addition of traffic calming measures. The report will refer to the Portsmouth citywide scheme and a previous EMAP report (14 July) that considered the options and implementations for implementing 20mph citywide speed limits.

Members are asked to: note the plans for implementing the Fishergate trial and approve the recommendations in relation to the petition request.
