20MPH SPEED LIMIT SCHEMES

The Council are looking to introduce 20mph schemes across the Ward in 2016. In the Adel area the first schemes will be the whole of the Cookridge Garden estate – The Crescent, The Drive, Broomfield, Whinfield, Farrar Lane and Heathfield. Other streets in Adel to be covered will be the Gainsboroughs and the Kingsleys, the Chestnuts estate, part of Holt Lane from Holt Road to the rear of Chestnut Way, Redesdale Gardens, Otterburn Gardens and Hollycroft Court (off New Adel Lane). This may extend to other streets in the future.

In the Holt Park area both sides of Holt Road i.e. the Holts, the Kenworthys, Holt Park Approach and all its offshoots and all of the Holtdales. A number of streets in Bramhope will have these schemes too – this will cover an area from The Cross all the way down Breary Lane (including all of its offshoots) to Leeds Road, plus the “Tree” streets which are all off Leeds Road (except at this stage The Sycamores).

These schemes will be advertised and residents can comment on them. If there are objections received then these will be taken into account during the process. At this stage I do not have an exact timescale.
