A 40 miles an hour speed limit could be introduced at Lower Compton near Calne from the A4 to just east of Winterbrook House.

The plan was discussed by the Calne Community Area Transport Group in December, when members recommended the scheme be implemented, providing it also had the support of Calne Without Parish Council.

A clearway could also be provided from the A4 to the junction with Marsh Lane, with an estimated total cost of £6,200 for both schemes, including legal fees, temporary traffic management provision and the installation of new signs and carriageway roundels.

The plan will be considered by Calne Without parish council at a meeting on February 11.
