This petition was considered completed by the Petitions Committee at its meeting on 25/04/2022.


The Committee considered the petition and noted that four other petitions had been submitted to the Committee around this issue. The Committee noted that the Welsh Government have clarified the exception process available for local authority to pursue if 20mph is considered inappropriate for a particular road. In light of the fact that the exception process provides a route forward for the petitioners to raise their concerns with their local authority who can review the decision, the Committee agreed close the petition and thank the petitioner.
