New 20mph speed limit proposed for West Penwith

A new 20mph is being proposed across the Parish of Penzance and the wider West Penwith area – this your chance to have your say!

What’s it all about?

Cornwall Council and Cormac are proposing to introduce new 20mph speed limits on most residential streets in the Parish of Penzance and the West Penwith area. 30mph buffers would also be implemented leading up to the new 20mph zones, where deemed necessary.

It is considered that implementing a reduced speed limit (20mph) on roads within the area will make a major contribution towards improving road safety, especially for vulnerable road users, and traffic using these roads. This, in turn, will aid in the achievement of Cornwall Council’s ‘Vision Zero’ goal – working towards the prevention of all fatal and serious injuries on the county road network.

Where are the proposed new speed limit zones?

A full list of all the proposed speed limit changes and the streets/roads this will affect can be found here:

Please note: not all of the maps we have been sent by Cormac and Cornwall Council are complete. Additionally, we have not been sent maps for all areas included in the proposed changes. If the street you are looking for is not on the map, or listed, please contact Annan Birkett – Email: [email protected] or Call: 01872 327250
