Proposed Speed Limit for Chearsley
I have looked at this plan for proposed speed limits in Chearsley, on the Chearsley website and most stretches already have the existing speed limit of 30 mph. At present there are numerous old speed limit orders covering a single community, so Bucks County Council want to replace these with a single order. To comply legally, a new Traffic Regulation Order has to show all the roads and their limits including those where the limit already applies. However,it seems to me, that the new order will extend the speed limit of 30mph on the Chilton Road to come into force at around Hill Farm.
