Oswestry Town Council 20mph Next Stage

Another step has now been taken with

20mph for Oswestry...


Yesterday (25.09.13) Oswestry Town Council voted to send '20mph for Oswestry' to a new focus group for Oswestry, rather than direct to Shropshire Council at this point. As I understand it this is so that the area to be designated in/around the town center as 20mph can be identified by consultation with a wider local audience before submission. Shropshire Council have expressed interest that Peace Cycling are part of this focus group.

Watch this space...

We are not there yet Oswestry but hope certainly still is.

20mph for Oswestry goes to Shropshire Council Enterprise & Growth Scrutiny Committee

Another milestone was reached today in the progress of the 

20mph petition for Oswestry...

Could go county wide!

Today's Enterprise & Growth Scrutiny Committee saw the petition for Oswestry 20mph receive a largely supportive audience and fair hearing was given. It seems attitudes within the committee are hopeful and those present urged that Oswestry Town Council submit their recent motion of support for 20mph through the new Road Safety Policy system before the end of September 2013.

Highways and Transport will be considering the petition and relevant data under the new Road Safety Policy, this will involve looking county wide across Shropshire for solutions to making our roads safer.

We are not there yet community members 

but hope certainly is.
