Tadcaster Road - Speed Limit Change

  • Residents may have noticed that the start of the 30mph speed limit has been moved from its original location near the balance pond on Tadcaster Road to further into the village just before the McCarthy Stone apartments.
  • This change was made by City of York Council against the strong objections of the Parish Council.
  • The PC pointed out that the original start location was at the point where the footpath changes sides of the road, where the cycle path from York changes sides of the road and where a change of surface in the road was installed as a physical reminder for drivers.
  • The PC also pointed out that the field alongside the original start of the 30mph speed limit was likely to come under pressure to be developed for housing in the near future (see below) and that the speed limit would probably have to be moved back to its original location if/when this started.
  • The change is currently ‘experimental’ but will become permanent if the City Council does not receive objections.
  • A City of York Council Engineer has asked that the following correction be made to the above point:
    • The recommendation for the decision about the speed limit location will be based primarily on the evidence from the before and after speed data, any objections that are received will also be considered.  It is not the case that the decision on the permanent location depends upon objections being received.
  • Residents wishing to object should write to the Assistant Director (Economy & Place), West offices, Station Rise, York YO1 6GA to be received by 19th August 2018
