Ingatestone and Fryerning Parish Council has been received a prestigious award as part of the Local Council Award Scheme

Proposed 20mph speed limit

IFPC have requested further information from Essex Highways regarding the proposed reduction in speed limit to 20mph on Ingatestone High Street and surrounding streets

The parish council are in favour of this planned reduction in the speed limit but would like to draw your attention to a number of concerns relating to the consultation and enforcement.

Ingatestone and Fryerning Parish Council note in the letter that there has been consultation with the public and local elected members'. We would like to know when these consultations had taken place and with which elected members.

Ingatestone and Fryerning Parish Council would like to know what enforcement measures will be introduced when the scheme is installed. At the moment, the 20mph is not enforced and there are regular incidents of overtaking in the 20mph zone. The parish council are particularly interested in knowing how the speed in the High Street will be enforced, considering the narrowness of the road and the pavements and that it is a conservation area.
