Take part here

The Chair of The Highland Council’s Economy and Infrastructure Committee, Councillor Ken Gowans is encouraging anyone who has not yet taken part in the 20mph consultation to do so before it draws to an end.

He said:

“Firstly I want to thank everyone who has taken time to engage in the consultation process since we launched it in December.

“It ends on Wednesday 31 January so there is still time for people to take part and pass on any supporting comments or any suggestions they have for changes.

“We are keen to hear from as many people as possible as the feed-back we get will be used as part of the decision-making process for the next phase of the roll-out.”

125 Highland settlements are part of the project which equates to around 610km of roads across the Highlands, 590km of which are on Local Authority Roads.

The short on-line questionnaire includes an interactive street map which allows anyone using it to point out any specific areas where they wish to see change or provide comment on.

The 20mph speed limits on Trunk Roads (A9, A82, A835, A96, A95, A87, A86, A830) are the responsibility of Transport Scotland but people can pass on their comments by using the Council’s on-line questionnaire.

The scheme is being fully funded by the Scottish Government who invited Highland Council to be an early adopter of 20mph limits.

The consultation will run until Wednesday 31 January 2024.
