Sunningdale Parish Council and Sunninghill & Ascot Parish Council have been working together to support Cycling & Walking in our parishes. A Cycling and Walking Vision was set in 2021 and shared with RBWM. The Vision included a number of initiatives and the creation of a network of cycling and walking routes for leisure and active travel.
The joint parish working group decided to focus initially on the implementation of 20mph speed limits as improving safety was seen as a major priority.
A “Safer Streets” community consultation was conducted in 2022 to determine the level of community support for the principle of introducing 20 mph speed limits, where appropriate (for selected roads where full consideration of the needs of vulnerable road users supports this lower limit).
The feedback from the consultation was very clear; 81% of respondents were in support of 20 mph (out of a total 272 responses). There were 657 suggestions for 20mph roads including significant support around all schools. 139 additional comments were made, including many ideas to make our streets safer.
Based on this comprehensive response from the communities, each parish has now prepared a proposal of 20 mph roads and other initiatives to make local streets safer.
The joint parish working group is now asking for comments on these proposals before finalisation and submission to the Highways Authority (RBWM). While each parish will finalise its proposals, the working group hopes to create consistency so that there will be continuity in speed limits on roads which cross from parish to parish.
