30mph extension

The Parish Council has been working with Northamptonshire County Council highways department for some time to extend the 30mph limit to include the area where people walk around the recreation ground – it’s taken a while as these things do because of the statutory regulations and necessary government approval, but we got there in the end. In January, new road signs were sited on Buntings Lane and Peterborough Road to highlight the extension of the 30mph speed limit. The new speed restriction means that not only do all three gates to the Recreation Field now open onto a 30mph limit, but also traffic coming into and out of the village via Peterborough Road will be slowed down; helping to make our village a safer place.
