20mph Speed Limit Consultation

Hampshire County Council has formed a Task and Finish Group of eight Councillors as part of a review of the Council’s policy for 20mph speed limits across the County. The current policy restricts new 20 mph zones and limits to address casualty reduction.

Working alongside officers conducting the review, the Group’s purpose is to consider evidence from various sources, along with data related to highway usage, enforcement, road safety, previous 20 mph speed limit implementation and environmental impacts, and to inform the Economy, Transport and Environment Select Committee. In turn this will feed into consideration of the review findings and decisions on future policy by the Executive Lead Member for Transport and Environment Strategy or Cabinet in due course.

As such, the Group would welcome your views about 20 mph limits in the context of other highway priorities, the County Council’s statutory duties to maintain the highway in a safe condition, and a limited budget. The Group would also welcome feedback on existing 20 mph limits within Hampshire. The findings from this survey will help to inform any decision by the County Council about future 20mph speed limit policy. At this stage, no new 20 mph speed limits are proposed until the outcomes of the review are known and any policy changes approved.

  1. 20mph limits should continue to be considered on a case by case basis. Several roads around Amport warrant a 20mph speed limit and it seems there’s public support for it. A blanket speed limit is not required
