I would like to request a review of the speed limit in Caulcott village. This is a single track road and has a 30 limit, this should be a 20 limit. There is an significant increase in vehicles going through the village, especially delivery vehicle. There are no pavements to walk on in the village. All the other villages around here are now a 20 limit, Lower Heyford, Upper Heyford, Islip. These villages are bigger that Caulcott and have roads that are not single track. I and some of the villagers are willing to change the signs if you supply the signs. Pets in the village are being run over, dogs, cats. The main road has a 40 limit and vehicle still travel in excess of this limit, even overtaking in the dip where the entrance to South Street and the pub are located. Please consider changing the speed limit in the village to 20.

Thank you for this enquiry - reduction of the speed limit in South Street would be subject to a feasibility study, at the request of the parish council, the drafting of a traffic regulation order and consultation with police and public. This legal/consultation process costs over £3000 and funds would also need to be found to cover the cost of implementation, if the new speed limit were approved. OCC does not currently have a budget for this type of scheme so alternative funding would need to be identified in the first instance. The parish are currently looking at measures to reduce speeds on the main road.
