Sheffield 20mph Speed Limit Strategy: Responses to a Proposal to Extend a Previously Advertised 20mph Speed Limit in Meadowhead and Greenhill

Decision Maker: Head of Strategic Transport and Infrastructure

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


This report details the response to the consultation on the proposed extension of a previously advertised 20mph speed limit in Meadowhead and Greenhill and seeks permission to implement the scheme.


(i) Make the Meadowhead and Greenhill 20mph Speed Limit Amendment No 1 Order in accordance with the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984; and


(ii) submit a proposal to affect the necessary works to introduce the proposed 20mph speed limit in accordance with the Capital Gateway Process.

Reasons for the decision:

Reducing the speed of traffic in residential areas will, in the long term, reduce the number and severity of accidents, reduce the fear of accidents, encourage sustainable modes of travel and contribute towards the creation of a more pleasant, cohesive environment.


The introduction of a 20mph speed limit in these areas would be in-keeping with the City’s approved 20mph Speed Limit Strategy.

Alternative options considered:

The principle of sign-only 20mph speed limits has been established in the approved Sheffield 20mph Speed Limit Strategy and, as such, no alternative options have been considered.
