Village gets green light to move 30mph signs

PUBLISHED: 17:23 01 May 2012



A scheme to extend the 30mph speed limit in Otterton has been rubber-stamped.

Residents and parish councillors want to extend the speed limit with one sign at the foot of Sleap Hill at one end of the village and another up to the entrance to Ladram Bay Holiday Park, in Bell Street.

The change – costed at £3,383 – has been accepted by county highways chiefs on the recommendation of county councillor Christine Channon, who said refinements to the safe positioning of the signs could be discussed later on.

Police Community Support Officer Sarah Trayhurn said she would support any subsequent repositioning if they were seen to be in a dangerous position.
