The Council in exercise of their powers under The Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 propose to vary the existing permanent Order to make the following variations to the speed limits on the B3114, Chew Lane, between Chew Magna and Chew Stoke:-

1. Introduction of an Advisory 20mph speed limit (when warning lights are flashing) outside of Chew Valley School;

2. Remove the 30mph speed limit buffer zones either end of Chew Lane; and

3. Extend the existing 40mph speed limit on Chew Lane up to the existing 20mph speed limits on the edges of Chew Magna and Chew Stoke
