  • 20mph is Plenty - Expression of Interest to Devon County Council image 1

A big thank you to all those who completed our online survey on 20 mph in Bovey Tracey and Heathfield.  65% of respondents were broadly in favour depending on specific details and 35% against.  Following feedback it is indicated that the most popular proposals are;

  • 62% in favour of 20 mph in an area of central Bovey.
  • 54% in favour of 20 mph in residential streets in Heathfield.

So, what happens now?   There is a Devon County Council scheme designed to introduce 20 mph zones in a small number of towns and villages each year.  At the Town Council’s Planning & Environment Committee, Councillors approved the Draft Expression of Interest for submission to DCC, however, there is no guarantee that it will be agreed by DCC or funded. We will keep you informed about any progress. Survey results will provide very useful information for any future proposals.
