You are invited to a Zoom meeting for 20’s Plenty for Us North Somerset supporters on Tuesday April 6th at 7.30 pm, hosted by the 20’s Plenty Campaign Manager Anna Semlyen. Please pass this email on to Councillors, and anyone else you think would be interested in attending the Zoom.
Anyone with an interest in road safety and lowering speeding on residential streets, and on streets used by walkers and cyclists, residents, and Parish and Town Councillors, are invited to attend the Zoom.
After a well attended supporters first Zoom meeting earlier this month, a Zoom meeting for District Councillors will take place on 31st March, when the topic of bringing in default 20 mph limits across North Somerset will be discussed.
Area wide 20 mph limits for streets where people live, shop, walk and cycle have been put in by many local authorities, and over 21 million people in the UK benefit from their local authority’s decision to adopt a 20mph default speed limit for most residential streets.
North Somerset Council policy on local speed limits is for Town and Parish Councils to apply individually for a traffic scheme, which are carried out by Highways at the rate of 1 or 2 a year, paid for by the Town or Parish Council. There is currently a waiting list. 20 mph limits are quicker and easier to implement, at around £3 per head of population, and are 7 times more cost-effective than isolated zones with physical calming.
20’s Plenty North Somerset is a group set up by local campaigners. There are several ’20’s Plenty ‘ campaign groups in North Somerset, and there is now a 20’s Plenty North Somerset Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/1404083953292502.
