Article in Witney Gazette about 20 mph speed limit 2023

  • BCA - 2023.4178
  • Item
  • 2023

Article from Witney Gazette written by Miranda Norris senior reporter, about the opponents of the 20 mph scheme to be introduced in villages throughout England in 2022, and stating that the Bampton Parish Council supported the proposal and it would go ahead. Refers to a flawed Survey Monkey where 155 objections came from the same IP address.
Bill Cotton, Corporate Director Environment and Place, wrote: “The parish council support the proposals as does the local elected county council member. Given this support it is considered that this outweighs the objections given.”
Bampton resident Alan Oliver said: "It's not so much that the county council has discounted the consultation, they seem to have done that everywhere. But, basically, if Bampton Parish Council asked for 20mph they would get it."
