At our meeting (7:30 Village hall Thursday 13th September) we will be discussing the next steps in obtaining a 20mph speed limit in Sedgwick. The motion is
Following over a decade of resident concern over pedestrian safety in our village, Sedgwick Parish Council would like to formally request that a 20mph speed limit be introduced in the Village. We have almost no pavements or street lighting, resident parking is on the roadside make it difficult for pedestrians to cross the roads, traffic levels are disproportionately high, as we are used as a rat run between Brettargh Holt and the A65 (and this will worsen as new housing developments are built), there are many agricultural vehicles that need to use the village centre and there are countless near misses under the narrow aqueduct and on blind junctions. We believe a 20mph speed limit would radically improve pedestrian safety for our residents.
Please come along to express your views.
