DRIVERS travelling in a Mossley housing development will have to watch their speed after dropping the limit to 20mph was given the go ahead.
After the Three Counties Road scheme was completed in 2021, attention has been paid to the movement of traffic.
And Tameside Council has agreed to cut 10mph from the speed limit to make sure it is safer.
Once implemented, the new regulation will apply for the entire length of Border Mill Fold, Old Mill Drive, Riverside, Shires View, Shuttle Close and Three Counties Road.
In a report which contributed to the council’s executive decision, it states: “The development has been constructed in four phases commencing in 2006 with the final phase, Old Mill Drive and Riverside, being completed in 2021.
“By design the estate has traffic calming features throughout, encouraging a low vehicle speed along the streets which are lined with residential properties.
“The properties are mostly occupied with young families.”
Bringing in the new speed limit will not cost Tameside Council a penny as the £2,499 cost will be recovered from developer Barrett Homes.
Anyone objecting to the plan has until August 21 to register their reasons and any objections received will be subject to a report at a future Speakers Panel (Planning) meeting.
