Speed limits – public health warnings

Please let me have copies of statements from the Director of Public Health advising cabinet colleagues, officers in departments responsible for highways and transport, officers in departments responsible for child protection and councillors of the case for or against (on public health grounds) a policy of 20mph speed limits on roads and streets where people and vehicles mix

There are no direct advisory statements in the very precise terms that have been requested but many Council documents on roads contain Public Health impact statements.

Further, information is published on the Devon Health and Wellbeing website in the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment and reports an example of which can be seen online at:


In addition, general road safety advice is available online at:
