Sandford villagers have launched a 20’s Plenty For Us campaign with the aim of asking North Somerset council to bring in a 20mph speed limit for residential areas throughout North Somerset. The group is asking for Congresbury to join the scheme.
20’s Plenty is a not-for-profit organisation which was formed in 2007 to help communities who want a more liveable street environment by setting a mandatory 20mph limit for most roads. Around 25 per cent of the UK population now live in local authority areas where most streets have a speed limit of 20mph. More information can be found at www.20splenty.org
Sandford organisers note that Bath, Bristol, Oxford and Cardiff are among the authorities which have successfully adopted 20mph limit schemes. Sandford’s campaign leaflet which contains contact details, can be viewed here or downloaded
