It has been noted that other places on the A252 have been given
30mph speed limits, the A252 does not run through the centre of any
of the other villages in the same way that it does in Molash,
affecting the lives of the residents of nearly 20% of the
properties in Molash, (20 of the 105 properties in Molash are on
The Street), on this stretch of the road from The Chapel to just
past Coppins Farmhouse.
From the Gov UK website on SETTING LOCAL SPEED LIMITS - SECTION 7: RURAL SPEED MANAGEMENT Key points read: It is government policy that a 30-mph speed limit should be the norm in villages. It may also be appropriate to consider 20 mph zones and limits in built-up village streets. It is recommended that the minimum length of a village speed limit should be 600 metres. However, traffic authorities may lower this to 400 metres, and in exceptional circumstances to 300 metres.
In our opinion, 40mph is too high a speed limit and, as outlined by GovUK, a limit of 30mph or less should be implemented, this is what we are requesting.
