Dozens of residents of Burwash Parish attended a drop-in session at Burwash Village Hall to review and comment on Parish Council plans for a 20mph speed limit zone in Burwash Village.
Parish Councillors joined residents to view the plans for the 20mph limit and village gateways; the proposed removal of the 40 mph limit at the west end of the village going out towards the BP garage; and the extension of the 30mph zone out to the 50 mph start point.

The traffic calming measures are part of the Parish Council’s Traffic Strategy, which has been developed in the last year and can be found here.
To establish whether the reduced speed limit was going to work for Burwash, the Council commissioned an independent traffic feasibility study earlier this year, and sought advice from East Sussex County Council’s road safety team.
Subsequently, data from automatic traffic count speed tests at the east and western end of the village satisfied East Sussex County Council Highways that the introduction of a 20mph limit through Burwash village was feasible.
The plan is on display on the Parish Council notice board alongside the path to Fairfield Surgery and at the Internet Cafe.
Comments on the scheme should be sent to the Parish Council by Friday 11th October at firstname.lastname@example.org or via the red post box outside the Internet Cafe.
