New 20mph zones proposed for Launceston

Cornwall Council is asking for local opinions on plans to introduce 20mph zones in various areas around Launceston.

Key areas affected include:

- St Johns/Moorland/Meadowside

There are also proposals to change parking restrictions around Tavistock Road and upgrade two pedestrian crossings on Roydon Road.

In St Johns Road, Moorland Road and Meadowside, the plan is to formally extend the 20mph zone and to introduce two new chicanes to slow traffic on Meadowside.

In the St Stephens Hill area, the plan is to introduce a 20mph zone and to add speed cushions in order to slow traffic.

The detailed proposals are shown on the diagrams.

Responses can be supportive, opposition or suggested alternatives and are required by 3rd July and can be made:

- by email to
