Woad Park Farm in Boston Lincolnshire, been in local newspaper Target asking for help and support, believe i read council refusing to help as no deaths have occurred
I live in a small village where the parish council has the older, smaller streets still set at 30MPH. I’d like to start a 20’s plenty campaign for the narrower streets of the village.
We live in a mainly linear village with masses of through traffic of all shapes and sizes. The village lies on a popular truck route to the A303 and is also in a rural setting with much modern heavy agricultural traffic. There is a footpath on one side, extremely narrow in places. A fairly recent traffic calming scheme introduced a number of chicanes in an attempt to slow traffic but has had the unintended consequence of tempting traffic to sprint between the chicanes. Parked cars down one side reduce traffic to single lane which exacerbates the sprinting. At the top of the village we have a VC Primary School and there has been a suggestion that a 20mph limit might be imposed there but no action so far.
We would be pleased to help. I will email you.
The assumption that 30mph limit is suitable in narrow / blind lanes causes many a fatality to wild animals and domestic pets, and even worse a child on his bicycle was knocked over and killed some time ago.
It has crossed my mind for some time that a 20mph limit would be more appropriate. How can we get started! I would really like to engage my parish council with you, so any information would be much appreciated.
My local Labour Party are considering putting a motion to the council for blanket coverage of Northampton with 20 mile an hour zones. This is going to happen fairly soon, In a week or two. Could you help with appropriate materials. I have been involved with 20 mile an hour zone is for many years
We would be pleased to help and I will email you
We would be pleased to help. Have you considered a Community Speedwatch initiative. Also you can purchase 20’s Plenty signs for you wheelie bins. I will email you separately.
We live in a residential street in Emsworth, Hampshire mainly populated by the elderly. It leads into a road which has a primary school which already has the 20 is plenty signs up, but these are only within approx 50 yards of the school. The road is used as a rat run, and speeds are often ridiculous, particularly when you consider the population is mainly people with limited mobility, hearing and sight. Permission is currently being drawn up to build 130 houses in the immediate vicinity which will only fuel the situation. I am really keen to organise a campaign for 20 is plenty signs, and would appreciate all the help I can get. Many thanks.
Don’t worry, you don’t have to be anti-car to campaign for appropriate speed limits. Most of our campaigners are drivers who just want their communities to be better places to be, including driving. We would be pleased to help and the best we can do is help set up a 20’s Plenty for Witham campaign. There are 20’s Plenty for Us campaigns in Chelmsford, Brentwood, Basildon, Colchester, Dengie, West Horndon, Epping Forest and Coggleshall.
Our campaign manager, Anna Semlyen will contact you shortly by email. explaining how we can help..
I have found out that Essex County Council would be responsible for establishing a 20mph speed limit in our town and am trying to get them to tell what the process is for establishing it. In the meantime it would be useful to know how you could help.
For the record, I’m not anti-car as I am a driver as well as a cyclist and pedestrian.
All the best
I will contact you by email regarding helping to form a 20’s Plenty for Church Stretton campaign.
