Initial ideas

The initial idea for a community-wide 20 miles-per-hour speed restriction within the boundaries of Newton Abbot is pictured in the map below.

The map below shows the proposed area of a future scheme. The yellow shaded area shows the extent of Newton Abbot’s residential areas and roads; in green are the ‘main’ roads; the shaded area in the centre of the map represents the town centre; and in purple are existing 20mph limits.

Please note, these are only initial ideas and the recent consultation gave local residents the opportunity to add their views.

Part of the consultation included the below map but in an interactive format – and within the consultation respondents could zoom into the different areas and roads in the town shown on the map and add their comments, ideas and preferences.

The consultation has now concluded.
