Consultation has begun on speed limits within the borough and that relevance to Blythe ward, especially Cheswick Green, Dickens Heath and Illshaw Heath.
In short, the proposal is to secure a 20mph speed limit within Cheswick Green and Dickens Heath Villages and to establish a 30 mph limit on some associated roads (Creynolds Lane/Illshaw Heath Road).
The maps for Cheswick Green and Dickens Heath can be found here:
The consultation can be found here and it is important as many people have their say (scroll down the page to Speed Limits Review (20, 30 and 40mph Maximum Speed Limits) : https://www.solihull.gov.uk/Roads-pavements-and-streetcare/Traffic-regulation-orders
I have provided the maps for some areas and notices that accompany the consultation.
In accordance with Department for Transport guidance, it is expected that the Council as the Local Highway Authority keep speed limits under review with changing circumstances and gives consideration to the introduction of more 20 mph limits and zones, over time, in urban areas and built-up village streets that are primarily residential.
This is an opportunity to have a say on road safety matters in our areas. I fully support this consultation and hope residents will support the proposals.
