Report Speeding


May 2023

Speeding needs to be reported

Peterston has the 20 mph speed limit now but we still have some traffic going too fast through the village.  The Community Council is trying to put in place other measures to promote enforcement of the speed limit.  We will only succeed in this if instances of speeding are reported to the Police and a dossier built up about the problem.

If you see speeding report it to the Police phone number or website shown on the poster above.

Local Development Plan


April 2023

The Candidate Site Register for the Vale of Glamorgan Replacement Local Development Plan is now available to view on its website.

Those sites which have failed the stage 1 assessment (initial site filter) have also been identified, and are available to view in the Stage 1 Candidate Site Assessment Register. Details of the full assessment process used to consider Candidate Site submissions is also available to view on the Council's website.

It is important to note that at this stage, the inclusion of a site in the Candidate Site Register does not infer that a site will be allocated within the emerging RLDP, nor does it imply any preference of the Local Planning Authority regarding its merits. This register is not a public consultation document; merely a statement of fact of all the candidate sites which have been submitted at this stage in the RLDP process.

Further information and an interactive or PDF version of the Register can be found on the Council’s website –


At this stage, Council Officers are not able to discuss the merits or otherwise of individual sites as this would be premature.

20 mph speed limit trial for PSE


August 2021

It has been resolved that the Vale Council will be trialing a 20 mph scheme in PSE using experimental Traffic Regulation Orders together with the collection of traffic data in the first 6 months of operation. This data will inform decisions taken on the permanency of the schemes or otherwise, within the 18 month trial periods and will be the subject of a future report to Cabinet.

The data from both schemes will also be made available to Welsh Government to assist with their pilot project

The Welsh Government has also announced that 20mph legislation will figure in this year’s legislative programme.

The public consultation on changing the default speed limit on residential streets from 30mph to 20mph is now open until 1st October 2021.
