A temporary safe zone of 40km/h is being proposed on the roads surrounded a number of Te Puke schools.

Local residents have been asked if they supported the introduction, put forward by the Western Bay of Plenty District Council.

They would create a 'school zone' around Te Puke Primary, Te Puke High School and Fairhaven School to improve student safety.

The 40km/h would be in place for 30 minutes each morning and afternoon during school days, as students arrived and left.

Feedback on the proposal is open from Friday July 1 to 4pm Friday, July, 15, at: haveyoursay.westernbay.govt.nz/school-speed or email speed@westernbay.govt.nz
