20s plenty campaignI have been asked to share this information to Councillors and interested members of the public from the 20's Plenty campaign group.
The following email has been received
"We aim to reduce excessive speed in areas where the roads are too narrow and traffic moves too quickly, and especially those areas where there are no footpaths or pavements."
Presentations have been emailed to the Council which show the impact of reducing speed in built up area.
"A recent 20's Plenty campaign meeting attended and supported by many County Councillors shows there is tremendous support for the initiative. The campaign is requesting that funding be applied for from central Government and from Director of Public Health.
Devon and Cornwall Police and the Police & Crime Commissioner, Alison Hernandez have already agreed their full support for this measure.
This is a cross party issue that can unify Cornwall at a time when nationwide, bridges need to be built in what had become a divided country- we can show the rest of the UK that Cornwall can lead the way in cross party agreement and achieving something with our new Council.
The Covid 19 pandemic has been devastating, but there have been a few silver linings including the enforced slowing down of all our lives. A chance for people to hear and appreciate the birds singing and the reduced traffic on our roads. As a county, our Tourist Board would leap at the chance to show that Cornwall is fully embracing this slower pace of life. By adopting 20 mph as a default in built-up areas and villages we will be encouraging people to slow down, listen to the birdsong and enjoy our unique communities."
