Closed 20 Oct 2013

Opened 26 Sep 2013

Feedback updated 21 Nov 2013

We asked

If you supported the measures being proposed in Wivelsfield and Wivelsfield Green to help support the introduction of a 30mph speed limit.

You said

The measures were generally well supported by the majority of the residents that returned their questionnaires.

We did

We will now meet with the Parish Council to discuss the consultation results in more detail and finalise the measures that will be introduced in Wivelsfield and Wivelsfield Green to help support the lower 30mph speed limit.


As part of our Village review of speed limits we are proposing to lower the speed limits in Wivelsfield. To help drivers slow down we are proposing to make some changes to the character and appearance of the roads that will be affected. We'd like to hear your views about these proposals.

Why your views matter

Nationally the government would like us to have a speed limit of 30mph in all of our villages. Where it's appropriate we are looking at how these changes might be made. We have been working with the Parish Council to identify the the changes that would be appropriate for Wivelsfield.  This includes things like markings on the road, different coloured road surfaces and widening pavements. We are also proposing to install white gateways and wooden planters that would be maintained by the Parish Council.
