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:
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.
