20mph is Plenty
The Cabinet report was approved on March 17th. Detailed consultation will start in the pilot area in late May. Subject to approvals, Full Business Cases will be developed for approval later in 2014. Implementation would follow with the majority of the work being completed by March 2015 in line with available funding from the Cycle City Action Grant. Implementation of the pilot would be fully completed in 2015-16. A report on the impact of the pilot scheme, together with outline proposals for further roll-out as relevant, would be developed in 2016-17.
