   Proposed 20 mph speed limits    16 September, 2023
Oxfordshire County Council wants to make our built environments safer and more attractive places to walk and cycle. To enable this, 20mph speed restrictions are being used to help promote alternative modes of transport for local travel. Further details on how the council is considering making 20mph the new 30mph for Oxfordshire communities can be found here.
We're therefore asking for your views on the proposal to introduce a 20mph speed limit throughout Marsh & Toot Baldon, replacing the majority of the existing 30mph speed limit in the process. Existing lengths of 30mph speed limit will remain on Baldon Lane leading north-eastwards from the A4074, and on The Croft between the two hamlets, with Officers having taken the current road environment & traffic usage into account.
The proposals are being put forward following road safety concerns raised by the parish, and form part of a countywide programme of works that seeks to deliver ‘a safer place with a safer pace’ for the residents of Oxfordshire. In light of this, please find the following consultation documents here https://www.letstalk.oxfordshire.gov.uk/marshtootbaldon_20mph2023:
  • Public Notice,
  • Statement of Reasons,
  • Consultation Plan(s), and
  • Draft Traffic Regulation Order.
As stated on the notice, any objections or other representations on the proposal need to be submitted by Friday 06th October 2023.
The Parish Council will coordinate responses. Please forward all comments to Tom Jones, email: clerk@baldonspc.org, by no later than Monday 29th September 2023. Alternately, please feel free to submit a response direct to OCC
