Chobham Speed Limit Changes and Traffic Calming Measures Proposal

Closed 2 Aug 2023

Opened 5 Jul 2023


Thank you for your interest in our Speed Limit Changes and Traffic Calming Measures proposals in Chobham. 

The legislation we must follow before introducing this scheme means that we need to allow objections and comments from the public to be considered before a final decision is reached about whether or not to go ahead with our preferred scheme in its current form.

The proposal:

Chobham High Street is a busy A-class road with a significant number of businesses, on-street parking and high levels of pedestrian footfall (including parents and children walking to and from the St Lawrence primary school).  Similarly, the initial section of the A319 Bagshot Road immediately west of its junction with the High Street is a busy A-class road with a parade of shops and a Co-op store.  A significant number of parents and children cross this section of Bagshot Road when travelling to and from the school (which pedestrians can access both via Chobham High Street and Bagshot Road).  A petition signed by a large number of parents was previously presented to the Surrey Heath Local Committee requesting measures to help reduce vehicles speeds and improve pedestrian crossing facilities.  Chobham Parish Council have also requested the introduction of a 20mph speed limit in the centre of the village.

Introducing a new length of 30mph Limit on Bagshot Road is designed to act as a “buffer zone” between the proposed 20mph speed limit and the existing 40mph limit westbound on Bagshot Road.    The proposed 30mph speed limit should help to gradually slow traffic so that the desired speed is achieved as it enters the village.  

Speed limits can help to reduce accidents and improve safety for all road users. It has been shown that the slower a vehicle is travelling then the less likelihood there is of a serious or fatal injury occurring. It is expected that by introducing lower Speed Limits in High Street and Bagshot Road, this will contribute to help reduce vehicle speeds, improve safety, reassure pedestrians and support sustainable travel more generally.  

If you would like to object, support, or comment on the proposal, please use the Online Survey linked at the bottom of the page, or alternatively, write to:
