Having completed the consultation process, Oxfordshire County Council have now instated a 20mph speed limit in parts of Charlbury.

The new 20mph speed limit will cover all the minor roads between Park Street (starting south of the Pre-School), Hixet Wood, Dancers Hill, Enstone Road, and Market Street; plus the area around the Enstone Road crossroads, exit from Hundley Way, and Ditchley Road. The 30mph limit will be extended further along Banbury Hill to encourage drivers to slow well in time for the 20mph limit, while improving crossing safety for pedestrians following the walking route. The area covered by the new speed limit can be found on the attached consultation document.

Signage has been put in place and temporary signs warn motorists on each of the roads at the start of the area covered by the new limit.

Charlbury Community Speed Watch and Thames Valley Police will continue to carry our random checks on vehicles speeds.
