You may have seen the laminated yellow notices pinned to lamp-posts about the proposal to put a 20 mph limit on the roads around Moorland, Primrose and Freehold. This is a sign-only, speed-hump-free initiative.
The notices invite people to write to support or object to the proposal by writing to the County Secretary & Solicitor at Lancashire County Council before 24 June 2011.
Please do take the time to write in support. It would be good to show the County how much this local residents want these measures to make our streets safer and pleasanter – if only so that they can wave it in front of those people who are still hostile to the idea.
So, I’ve added a draft letter/email below which you may want to use/adapt/add to/ignore. Feel free to add your own comments. The yellow notices only give an address for the County Solicitor, but I’ve phoned his office and got an email address (below).
If you want further information from the County, you can visit their website
If you want more information about the benefits of 20 mph limits, the national website can provide it in spades.
Please ask sympathetic neighbours to do the same. The more the merrier!

Dear Mr Fisher
Lancaster East Area 20 mph speed limit
I strongly support the proposal to impose a 20 mph speed limit on the streets in Lancaster East. This is great news for road safety and will help to make our neighbourhood a pleasanter place to live.
I look forward to seeing the scheme implemented soon.
