Bressingham and Fersfield Parish council believes that there are new grounds for us to request a review of the speed limit on some of the roads immediately outside Fersfield.

We would like your opinion before we do, and so we invite you to contribute to this consultation. We have set out our draft proposal in the following series of questions. You can comment on each point in the comment box provided and provide suggestions for any additional information that you consider should be included.

The survey closes on 30th November 2020.

We will summarise and report on your answers (anonymised) and tell you what our next steps will be by 14th December 2020.

PLEASE RETURN PAPER SURVEYS TO BRESSINGHAM VILLAGE SHOP BY 30th NOVEMBER 2020

Question Title

* 1. We propose to review the 30 mph speed limit in effect through parts of Bressingham. Please tell us whether you approve or disapprove and add a comment if you want.

Question Title

* 2. We propose to review the 40 mph speed limit in effect through parts of Bressingham. Please tell us whether you approve or disapprove and add a comment if you want.

Question Title

* 3. This question is about the 60 mph speed limit on the triangular route consisting of Fersfield Common, Bates' Lane and The Street and the stretch of The Street between Bates' Lane and the beginning of the Fersfield 30mph limit.
Please comment on the following features of the roads and road users. Tell us whether you think they are correct or not. 
Tell us whether you think the speed limits should be changed to respond to them.

Question Title

* 4. We believe that a reduction in the maximum speed limit on the Bressingham and Fersfield Roads that we asked you about in Q1-3 will:

(a) reduce the anxiety felt by local people who use or live around the roads, about safety and accessibility.
(b) improve the amenities and environment for walkers, less abled travellers and cyclists, whose use of the roads has increased by an estimated 10-fold or more since March 2020.

Please tell us whether you agree or not and tell us why.

If relevant, give details of the difficulties that you face personally. Your answer will be kept strictly confidential.

Question Title

* 5. The traffic survey commissioned by the Parish Council in 2019 suggests that a reduction in the applicable speed limit will not limit the ability of traffic to move through the village and beyond it.

Question Title

* 6. The cost of implementation is minimal. There may be a reduction in costs incurred by the county council through maintaining roads unsuitable for the prevailing speed limits (to be checked and confirmed).

Question Title

* 7. I live in or within 1 mile of Bressingham and/or Fersfield and/or spend time walking/driving/riding and bike or horse in the villages.

Please explain your answer in the appropriate text box.
