What happens when you comment on a proposed speed limit
The highway engineer dealing with the proposed speed limit will assess your comments and form a professional review. This may involve liaising with other Council departments, Cheshire Constabulary, town and parish councils as well as assessing comments from other local residents. Based on this information officers will then weigh up all issues surrounding the proposed speed limit before making a recommendation.
What happens next
Following the end of the consultation period, the highway engineer dealing with the proposed speed limit will let you know the outcome and the next steps. Decisions on whether to uphold an objection will be made by the Area Highways Manager. However, there may be occasions where a decision is required by the Council’s Executive Member due to more complex and contentious issues. Full details of the speed limit proposal and plans of the location will be available on either the Council’s website or from the Area Highways Team.
What happens if you are not happy with the decision
You have no right to appeal. The lead officer for the proposed speed limit change will explain the reasoning which led to the decision being made.
