Cheshire East Council’s Speed Management Strategy Consultation 2021

A newly updated strategy

Cheshire East Council has produced a draft Speed Management Strategy as an update to the one that was published in 2016. A draft version of the updated Speed Management Strategy can be downloaded here (1.0MB).

The Speed Management Strategy sets out a consistent approach which the council will take to managing speed on the highway network.

The strategy has been updated to:
  • Take account of changing attitudes towards speed and traffic management, particularly since the pandemic when people’s habits and priorities have changed
  • Provide a safer road environment for all
  • Encourage more Active Travel within Cheshire East
  • Increase transparency about the way the council will manage speed and traffic flow
