Fact sheets and briefing are available on a wide range of topics connected with 20mph limits on our national site at www.20splentyforus.org.uk/briefings.htm
In particular in Broadwindsor -
The Broadwindsor Parish Plan 2012 stated that in response to the questionnaire sent out to 684 households in the Parish:
The number of people living in the parish in 2001 was 1014, and nearer 1,300 now.
On average parish households have 1.5 cars each.
Over 300 respondents to the parish questionnaire travelled by their own motorised transport to work or school - by far the majority.
65% of respondents consider there to be traffic problems in the parish.
Speeding was the most commonly cited problem with inconsiderate or dangerous parking particularly in Broadwindsor Square and outside the school
The increased number of HGVs and farm traffic were also quoted as causes of problems
Close to 70% of respondents want the introduction of a 20mph speed limit through the villages
Almost a third thought warning signs were not good or frequent enough.
Many thought that the speed limits should be extended further beyond village boundaries, and mirrors placed at dangerous bends.
Agricultural traffic was considered sometimes to drive too fast through the villages and that modern tractors and similar vehicles were too large to cope with village roads.
There are currently approximately 90 primary school children attend Broadwindsor Primary School.
