Introduction of 20mph speed limit
There’s some good news on our efforts to introduce a 20 mph speed limit on the roads through Bourton. The proposal is now open to public consultation and – with your support – we’re hopeful this will go ahead. The proposed changes also include the introduction of a 30 mph limit on the Bishopstone Road heading beyond the church and all the way past the entrance to Fern Farm.
A map summarising the proposed changes is available here:

Please engage with the online consultation and support these proposals. Speeding traffic through the village and past the Fern Farm entrance will only get worse as Swindon’s Eastern Development gathers pace and drivers use the local roads as short cuts and rat runs. The closing date for the consultation is Friday 16 December.
