QUESTIONS FROM MEMBERS

To receive any questions from Members, notice of which has been given in accordance with the Town Council’s Standing Orders.

 

Twenty is Plenty Campaign

To consider the following motion proposed by Councillors Mrs Moseley, Green and Dean to support the “20 is Plenty” campaign:

 

"Shrewsbury Town Council recognises the benefits associated with a 20 miles per hour speed limit in residential areas, rather than a default limit of 30mph, which exists in most parts of the town, and County.

There are fewer fatalities and injuries, greater survivability in traffic collisions, improved air quality, reduced fuel use, and a greater willingness of the population to walk or cycle - which has associated health benefits.

The Town Council therefore supports the "20 is Plenty" campaign and asks that Shropshire Council investigates how best the 20 miles per hour limit can be introduced to the streets of Shrewsbury."
