    We are hoping to persuade the Parish Council to explore the feasibility of a 20mph limit for the two villages in our parish, Sandford and Winscombe, and would also, like Pauline in Cuddington, very much like to hear from any communities who have been successful in having a limit put in place, and to know the details of how this was brought about. If you can help, please get in touch with us.

    We have been campaigning for a year in Cuddington and have now persuaded our Parish Council to explore the feasibility of 20mph in the village. I have been asked to chair a working party of parish councillors and villagers to produce a report in support of a proposal to implement a scheme.
    I’d like to hear from those communities that have been successful, to see if they would share their documentation. At the moment I am slightly daunted as I contemplate reinventing the wheel!
    We feel we are no longer in campaign mode but now need to move to implementation.
    Any advice would be gratefully received.

    Upper Beeding (village in West Sussex, popn 3,000) does have a village-wide 20 mph zone. We have had it for some years now.

    If you ask most people especially those with families they would say they support the introduction of The 20 mph in most urban setups and villages as we tend to see a lot of erratic drivers acting busy busy busy. We at https://www.loorolls.com/ totally love the idea especially near our business area in Liverpool.

    We can do that. Note that current DfT guidance states quite clearly that arterial and main roads can be set with 20mph limits. What we say is that any speed limit above 20mph should be justifiable and take full account of the needs of vulnerable road users. Local officers, councillors and communities are best placed to decide such exceptions and inclusions.

    Thanks Rod. I’m also keen to see the population figures if possible. I know that’s not easy in a CMS environment but could they be added in brackets after the place names perhaps? I’m interested in the implementation of 20mph coverage in my town and, ideally, would like to see which areas are covered in the smaller provincial towns similar to my own. I support the lower limit in residential areas but not necessarily along arterial routes, even if they are also residential.

    Hi David

    Thanks David. The table has now been added

    The table of places shown on your old website is far easier to read than the Google map. Is it possible to include the table somewhere here as well?

    If you think that “20 is plenty” you’re either
    a) a pensioner who drives a Peugeot 207 and thinks “20 is plenty” on the motorway.
    b) A hipster who drives a Nissan Cube or Leaf
    c) You work for H&S.
