The County Council will soon be circulating Questionnaires regarding a pilot in the town and this meeting has been arranged by local residents to discuss and promote the benefits gained by lowering speeds.
It will focus on the environmental, social and safety benefits for all, whether pedestrian, driver or cyclist and on developing a group to take the initiative forward.
It is important to have community support.
Anyone who would like to provide support in any way or would like further information should email
Individuals, community groups, parents, schools, businesses are all invited to attend.
This is an opportunity to improve the town for everyone.
The Town Council has shown its support for the pilot, and presently over 8 million people in the UK now live in areas where 20mph has been or will be introduced.
