MATTERS FOR INFORMATION

10.

Cabinet 12 February 2021 minute 630 - 30mph speed limit in Monks Way, Bovey Tracey

To note for information, the decision of the Cabinet further to this Committee’s consideration at the last meeting:-

 

(Councillors Biederman, Connett, Dewhirst, Gribble and Hannaford attended remotely in accordance with Standing Order 25(2) and the Local Authorities and Police and Crime Panels (Coronavirus) (Flexibility of Local Authority and Police and Crime Panel Meetings) (England and Wales) Regulations 2020 and spoke to this item).

 

The Cabinet noted that at the meeting of the Teignbridge Highways and Traffic Orders Committee, the Committee had considered a Report of the Chief Officer for Highways, Infrastructure Development and Waste (HIW/20/3939), recommending a 40mph speed limit to reduce traffic speeds around the new junction and signal controlled pedestrian crossing as part of the new Challabrook housing development.

 

The Committee had RESOLVED (minute *103 refers) that (a) the County Council’s policies on speed limits and wider impacts of health, sustainable travel and whole environment be noted; and (b) that the Committee supports a 30mph speed limit on Monks Way, Bovey Tracey and refers this matter to the Cabinet as a departure from policy.

 

The Cabinet considered this matter on the 9th December 2020 (minute 596 refers) and RESOLVED that the matter be deferred pending a site visit to meet the Local Member and consider the impact of future development and that the site visit include officers from the Road Safety Team.

 

The Cabinet Member for Highways Management thanked those who had attended the virtual site meeting and commented it had been important to listen to the views of the local community and concerns of the Town Council.

 

He had taken a number of different professional opinions on board, for example, on pedestrian crossings and from police officers and research on the safety record of pedestrian crossings in 30mph limits and 40 mph limits.

 

It was MOVED by Councillor Hughes, SECONDED by Councillor Hart, and

 

RESOLVED that two departures from policy be agreed, to permit the advertising of a Traffic Regulation Order; (a) to introduce a section of 40mph speed limit from the existing 30mph terminal point to the South of Station Road Roundabout past the Challabrook development to a point approximately 120m south of the turning into the Challabrook development (a section of national speed limit will be retained from that point to the 30mph terminal at the Pottery Road roundabout); and (b) that the section of new 40mph speed limit be introduced below the normal minimum length of 600m.
