Bristol City Council is already in the process of introducing a number of 20 mph speed limits in residential streets to improve road safety and environmental benefits. Some of these speed limits cross the border into South Gloucestershire so we are planning to introduce the same limit.

The plans cover the following areas:

● Polly Barnes Hill in Hanham

● The Fishpool Hill and Charlton areas of Patchway ward

● Various roads in the Staple Hill, Soundwell and Kingswood area.

The aim of the scheme is to reduce traffic speed while making walking, cycling and outdoor play become more attractive, all of which have a positive impact on health and our communities.

More detail on the proposals is available online at

You can also see the plans at the following libraries in Staple Hill, Downend, Kingswood and Hanham. Plans for the Fishpool Hill and Charlton areas will be available to view at Henbury Library, Bristol.

If you would like to make any comments about the proposals you can do so from today, Monday 4 November to Monday 2 December.
