Answer for Borough spending on 20mph zones

Answered By:

(Written answer provided on 13 April 2012.)

In 2008/09, £8.6m was spent on 20mph zones which funded 99 zones. In 2009/10, £8.2m was spent on 20mph zones which funded 94 zones.

As advised in the response to question 1033/2012, the LIP reforms introduced from 2010/11 did away with the ring fencing of the LIP budgets for specific programmes, such as 20mph zones. Therefore, it is not possible to provide equivalent figures for 2010/11, 2011/12 and 2012/13.

However, at the end of each financial year, boroughs are required to report what has actually been delivered on the ground using LIP funding. For 2010/11, this showed that 135 separate 20mph zones were delivered with LIP funding. Information on the number of 20 mph zones and other LIP deliverables completed in 2011/12 will be available in May 2012.
