Buckley 20mph Public Information Events
Flintshire County Council and Welsh Government would like to thank everyone who attended the Buckley 20mph public information events held between 25 January and 9 February 2023.
It has now been 12 months since 20mph speed limits were introduced in Buckley, Mynydd Isa, New Brighton, Drury, Burntwood, Bryn Y Baal and Alltami, as part of Welsh Government's Phase One Settlement trials, and in advance of the roll out of its new legislation across the whole of Wales on 17 September 2023.
Held over 15 sessions with 475 places available, 127 people attended either in person or online via Zoom. During each session, local people were given information about Welsh Government's new 20mph legislation and how it needs to be applied to local roads and were invited to provide feedback on their experiences of its implementation in Buckley.
At the end of last year 9,426 households, located within the 20mph restriction areas, received a letter inviting them to take part in an online survey. 2,712 responses were received. The feedback now collected at the public information sessions will be added to the results of the online survey and will help inform the Council's review of local roads. Further assessment of the local roads (where identified) will be undertaken in accordance with the published Welsh Government exceptions criteria. The feedback from the information sessions and survey results will also be provided to Welsh Government to inform the national rollout of 20mph.
The outcomes of the survey and review will be published on the Council's website and at the Buckley Connects Centre by the end of March 2023.
