The Perth and Kinross Council Environment and Infrastructure Committee are meeting on Wednesday 21st March. At this meeting a proposal for a 40mph speed limit on Easthill Road, Auchterarder will be discussed.
Consultation was carried out with the residents, local elected members, the Community Council and Police Scotland, who were in agreement with the proposal.
Approval of this proposal will allow a start to be made to the formal procedure to vary the relevant Traffic Regulation Order (TRO). This procedure will involve statutory consultation, preparation of the draft TRO and advertising in the press. This will provide an opportunity for additional comments to be made or objections to be raised. If objections are raised, these will be reported back to Committee, with appropriate recommendations.
It is recommended that the Committee approve the promotion of a variation to the relevant TRO to allow the start of the process towards the introduction of a 40mph speed limit.
The attached drawing shows the proposed stretch of road to be subject to the 40mph limit.
