20 miles per hour for Bovey Tracey and Heathfield?
We’d really like to hear your views. Please complete and submit this short survey. Thank you.
As some of you will know the Town Council asked local people at the Nourish Festival in September about their thoughts on the idea of moving towards a 20 mph speed limit on some roads in Bovey Tracey and Heathfield. Around 170 people stopped to give their views and the majority were very much in favour of limiting speeds on some roads to 20 mph.
It is now known that a lower speed limit reduces accidents and injuries when accidents do occur. It also facilitates more walking and cycling.
So, we would now like to build on these early survey results with a more specific proposal, which we believe reflects the majority of the views we've heard. Thank you very much for all the feedback so far.
We hope you will complete this very short questionnaire, even if you have already given us your views. Thank you for your help.
