20 mph speed limit proposal for Sandford St Martin

The county council is changing its approach and acceptance of 20mph restrictions which will enable a much greater coverage across Oxfordshire.

The proposal is aimed to:

  • make streets safer
  • encourage residents to walk or cycle
  • reduce noise and pollution.

The initiative will not be compulsory and will need to be supported by the parish/town council and by the local county councillor.

Larger signs will mark the entrance and exit of a 20mph area where the speed limit changes. These signs will be supplemented by smaller repeat signs or road markings.

At the December meeting, Sandford St Martin Parish Council voted to request a 20 mph speed limit zone for Sandford St Martin.

The Parish Council would appreciate any comments you may have on the adoption of the scheme.
