Following extensive housing development in the Parkend area the existing 40mph limit will be reduced to a 30mph limit. This will extend the existing 30mph limit from near the old Sandwickhill School beyond the Parkend housing scheme on the A866.
We asked if the public were in acceptance of a proposal to make the (A866 Parkend, Stornoway, Isle of Lewis) (30mph Speed Limit) Order 2018.
There were no objections to the proposal following a 4 week consultation period.

Following extensive housing development in the area the existing 40mph limit will be reduced to a 30mph limit. This will extend the existing 30mph limit from near the old Sandwickhill School beyond the Parkend housing scheme on the A866.
When the existing 40mph speed limit was made in 1992 there wasn’t any development in the fields to the north of the A866.
With the construction of the Mackenzie Housing estate there has been a significant rise in the number of pedestrian and traffic movements in this area.
