Issue details

Lancashire County Council (Various Locations, Burnley, Chorley, Fylde, Hyndburn, Lancaster, Pendle, South Ribble and West Lancashire) (Revocation, 30mph, 40mph, 50mph, 60mph and Derestricted Speed Limits (21/22 No1)) Order 202*

Following investigations and a public consultation, it is proposed to make a Speed Limit Order to reduce a number of speed restrictions on various roads within Burnley, Chorley, South Ribble and West Lancashire to improve the safety and operation of the public highway network.


The order further formalises the current signed Speed Limits on various roads within Chorley, Pendle, Preston, South Ribble, West Lancashire and Wyre along with correcting anomalies within existing orders in the districts of Burnley, Fylde, Lancaster, and Pendle which have been highlighted by Lancashire Constabulary as requiring amendment to allow for effective enforcement.


In addition, this proposal revokes duplicate orders and orders that are no longer required due to being 30mph by virtue of street lighting.


This is deemed to be a Key Decision and the provisions of Standing Order No. C19 have been complied with.
