Councillor Amy Johnson has put forward a motion to rescind the decision to decrease the speed limit from 50km/h to40km/h in the area between Dawson and Humffray streets bounded by Mair and Dana streets.

The plan has been strongly opposed by a majority of the Ballarat community.

However, all councillors except for Amy Johnson and Vicki Coltman voted in favour of the speed reduction.

Speaking to The Courier last Wednesday, Cr Johnson said the speed limit would negatively impact traders.

If the changes are approved they will be trialed for 12 months before a review period.

A recent onlinesurvey undertaken by the council found that almost 70 per cent of the 569 respondents were opposed to a reduction in the speed limit.

Meanwhile, councillors Des Hudson and Belinda Coates have stood by the proposal.

Ballarat City Councillor Amy Johnson wants to keep the CBD speed limit.
