Are you in favour of slower speed limits in the village?

Hambledon Parish Council is collecting feedback on potential changes to the speed limits throughout Surrey County Council. Traffic authorities have been asked to consider more 20mph limits and zones in built up village streets in order to ensure greater safety for pedestrians and cyclists. Any changes will be subject to extensive consultation prior to implementation.

Hambledon Parish Council would like to hear from you:

Do you support the introduction of some 20mph limits to the village.

Are there any roads in particular you would support this change on.

Please get in touch with the Parish Clerk if you have any views either way: parishclerk@hambledonsurrey.co.uk

Any speed limit that might help reduce vehicular speed in favour of pedestrian/horse traffic on our narrow village roads would be welcome.

Does that have any effect in reality? The present limits make little difference. My stretch of road, just outside the limit, is still highly dangerous.

Should be no more than 30 anywhere in village and 20 quite enough from Lane End side of village hall to junction with woodlands road. I think some humps would be more effective, especially corner from Rock Hill to Malthouse Lane/Woodlands Road. We’v been through all this in the past and I understand highways will do nothing until a death! Any reduction would help, including for racing cyclists.

Definitely 30 miles throughout, different speed limits through the village are too confusing and invite driving too fast especially past the pub on the way to Hydestile crossroads illustrated by a 4 car pile up at the bottom of Feathercombe Lane only last week….

Police humps are going to be more effective, many drivers ignore speed limit signs. from the village shop to junction past village hall as a race track.
