Speed limit reductions. Following pressure from both your Parish Council and your County Cllrs. the County Council is proposing two speed limit reductions. The process to bring these into effect does require a consultation process & thus the signs will probably not be seen in until late summer. 

1. Hartle Lane Belbroughton from the junction of the A491 until the village a reduction from 50 mph. to 40 mph.  -   It is relatively narrow and has frequent bends which reduce forward visibility.

2. Top Road and Middle Road Wildmoor  - introduction of a 30 mph limit -  Top Road has the requisite level of frontage development, is narrow, has parked vehicles in places and the absence of a continuous footway means that pedestrians ('vulnerable road users') are required to walk in the carriageway. Wildmoor Lane is narrower still and also lacks footways.
