Lund Syke Lane - Speed Limit Update.

February 22, 2017

South Milford Parish Council have supported the residents of South Milford in their request to reduce the speed limit along Lund Syke Lane  to 30mph .

We requested that the proposal to reduce the speed limit from 60mph to 40mph be reconsidered and  lowered to 30mph.

Due to the number of objections raised by residents and SMPC, a report was compiled and submitted  by NYCC to The Business and Environmental Services Executive Members Group.

They were asked to consider the facts and make the  decision on the speed limit.

It included data logging information taking evidence of speeds during a 7 day period back in October 2016.This showed average speed figures of 24mph and 85 percentile figures of 29mph in both directions .

This group met on 16 December 2016 and decided that the proposed speed limit of 40mph is appropriate for both the environment and character of the road  .After viewing the survey results they concluded that most drivers appeared to be driving at a speed which they considered appropriate .They considered 40 mph is  less likely to be disregarded by drivers  and was also in accordance with national guidance " setting local speed limits ".

They  made the decision to make the speed limit 40mph and not 30mph  .


Following this decision , SMPC requested  further information on the data logger results from NYCC . Cllr Bob Packham has obtained details  showing the data logger was located by the telegraph pole next to the last property on the lane  by the  bend in the road. SMPC consider the location  on a bend in the road  distorts the results and are asking  NYCC to repeat the excercise in a different location on the lane .


We are also looking at how we can address speeding issues  across South Milford and Lumby   with  NYCC and the police. We are planning  to discuss this at a future Parish Council meeting  to look at how we can take this forward with the residents of  South Milford and Lumby.
