A number of new speed limits are set to be introduced on roads in and close to Haddenham.

Decisions have been taken on new restrictions for the following locations:

Dollicott, Haddenham

A proposal for a 20mph limit on this road has been issued.

This has been brought forward as there is more vehicle and pedestrian traffic on this road following housebuilding in the area.

A consultation found 91 per cent of people asked agreed with this proposal.

Bernwood councillor David Lyons wrote: "I support the proposals, though they do not go far enough to address the community's desire for a general 20mph limit in the village as expressed in the approved neighbourhood plan."

Stanbridge Road, Haddenham

Transport bosses want to extend a 30mph speed limit here following the increased traffic nearby after housebuilding in the area.

100 per cent of people surveyed agreed with this move.

Bernwood councillor Judy Brandis said: "Stanbridge Road is a straight, fast road out of Haddenham so with the new houses built or about to be built 30 mph is fast enough on this road. I understand this will be imposed to just beyond the garden centre."

A418 Scotsgrove Hill / Aylesbury Road

A 40mph limit could be introduced on this road if Bucks' highways chiefs plans get the go-ahead.

This proposal is seemingly less popular with residents, with 61 per cent supporting the plans and 37 per cent opposing.
