'Twenty's Plenty' 20mph zones
The Parish Council instigated the implementation of a 20mph zone in the heart of the village and The Quarries. We did consider introducing a 20mph zone on the Joywood development however the mean speeds there were very low and the estate already benefits from traffic calming in the form of speed tables so a signed 20mph zone was not deemed necessary.
To facilitate the 20mph zone, a reduction to 30mph was introduced at the west end of Haste Hill Road and a reduction to 40mph on Bottlescrew Hill and part of Beresfords Hill - see plan below for details.
This scheme was completed in 2021 and was fully funded by the Parish Council.
