Speeding through Loves Green & Edney Common

Look at the speed of vehicles driving through the villages which are currently set at 30mph.

Some vehicles have been seen going through at over 40mph on blind corners and even overtaking on the carriageway limited straight parts of the road.

Speeds need to be reduced ideally to 20mph, especially outside the school with better signage and layout of the current build out in place.

Dear Mr Maclean


Thank you for your recent ePetition regarding a request for speed reductions in Loves Green and Edney Common.


Speeding is ultimately a Police matter and should be reported to Essex Police via their non-emergency telephone number 101.


Requests for speed limit reductions are dealt with by the Local Highways Panel (LHP). Essex has LHPs in each of our 12 districts. The LHP is responsible for making the decisions about which local highway schemes to recommend for design, costing and implementation in their area. Each panel has a set budget and meets at least four times a year to review requests for their area and prioritise which ones to put forward for further validation and design. 


The LHP, which consists of Local County and Borough/City/District Councillors, consider requests which have sufficient community support as long as there is some degree of justification for it, for example:


•    The scheme reduces casualties;

•    The scheme improves safety; and

•    The scheme represents good value for money.


In order for your suggestion to be considered you must contact your Local County Councillor, together with details of this suggestion, who will consider how to take this matter forward. Your Local County Councillor can be found on our website here: https://cmis.essex.gov.uk/essexcmis5/CouncillorSearch.aspx


It should be noted that if your request or proposal is not supported then we would be unable to take this matter any further.


More information about LHPs including copies of agendas and minutes can be found on our website: https://www.essexhighways.org/Transport-and-Roads/Highway-Schemes-and-Developments/Local-Highway-Panels.aspx


Thank you for contacting us regarding this matter.
