c) Officers investigate the feasibility of a shared cycle/pedestrian facility along the A6096 from Ilkeston to Spondon.

e) Objectors with specific requests for collision data should contact the CREST who are the enforcement arm of the Derby and Derbyshire Road Safety Partnership at

Reasons for the decision:

This proposal helps to achieve the Council’s aim to reduce casualties, improve the safety and quality of life for residents and those who travel through.

The proposed Speed Limit Order for the A6096 forms part of a number of improvements included in a 2021-22 Traffic and Safety Capital Scheme for this route.

Alternative options considered:

Due to the A classification, current speed limit and rural nature of the A6096, other suitable traffic measures are limited. For example: vertical and horizontal measures can only be introduced on roads with a speed limit of 30mph or less, and where street lighting is present.

The Department for Transport (DfT) guidance provides a site selection criteria where the number of killed or seriously injured is at least three per kilometre for fixed safety camera sites. Before investigating the suitability of Safety Cameras other options should be considered first.
