Do you support Twenty mile per hour Zones in Surrey?
Surrey Lib Dems are challenging Surrey County Council to roll out a bigger and bolder programme of schemes to implement 20 mph zones using signs only, in a bid to facilitate better conditions for walking and cycling and improve road safety. The Lib Dems group is bringing a motion to the Council meeting in January.
It will press the Council to follow many other highways authorities such as Lancashire, Cambridgeshire and Oxfordshire to radically change their approach to the introduction of 20 mph speed limits in areas where it is currently 30mph. This would affect all roads, unless there was a good reason to leave the speed limit at 30 mph, and would include roads outside schools, residential areas and busy pedestrian streets.
Alastair Bayliss, Steering Group Member for campaign group; 20s Plenty for Surrey, expressed his support for the motion. "Surrey really needs a policy that allows communities to adopt 20mph limits in a cost-effective way and without having to wait many years. We urge all councillors to support this proposal regardless of their political affiliation"
Surrey Liberal Democrats are asking residents to identify whether they would support such a move and if they would like their specific communities to be considered for a simpler community-wide 20 mph zone. The generalised information will be used in support of the motion going to the Surrey County Council Meeting in January and will also be used to generate specific petitions in communities where there is a demand to move to 20 mph zones.
Please be sure to give us your address so we can identify where the responses have come from and use this to identify where there is demand for 20 mph zones in Surrey.
This survey will be available until Monday 31st January 2022.
