OCC 20 mph consultation for Leafield


NOTICE is given that Oxfordshire County Council proposes to make the above order
under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 and all other enabling powers.

The effect of the order – in support of road safety issues – is to introduce a 20mph
speed limit throughout Leafield replacing the majority of the existing 30mph speed
limit in the process, leading out of the village to the following points:

1. Buttermilk Lane – a point 47 metres south-west of Witney Road,
2. Fairspear Road – a point 278 metres north-west of Chapel Close,
3. Hatching Lane – a point 98 metres north of Lower End,
4. Lower End/Leafield Road – a point 152 metres east of Greenwich Lane,
5. The Ridings – a point 175 metres southwest of The Greens.

A 465 metre section of the existing 30mph speed limit will remain on The Ridings
leading south-westwards out of the village, with Officers having taken the current
road environment & traffic usage into account.

The Oxfordshire County Council (Leafield Parish) (Restricted Roads) Order 2001 will
be revoked/replaced as necessary.
