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
