Spreading the word about 20’s Plenty in Chichester

The 20’s Plenty community group is organising 13 stands to encourage people to take part in the public consultation on 20mph limits in Chichester.

The first stand was held last Saturday morning outside the Council House in North Street, Chichester.

Volunteers asked passers-by whether they had taken part in the public consultation on 20mph limits, and requested people’s addresses so the council could write to anyone who may have lost their voting form.

Sarah Sharp, chairperson of 20’s Plenty for Chichester, said: “We strongly urge the citizens of Chichester to take part in the public consultation before it closes on September 24.

“We know from our street surveys last year that roughly 90 per cent of people support 20mph limits.

“We need to show councillors the scheme has widespread public support. We are amazed at the number of people who have already put up their 20’s Plenty posters in their windows.”

The campaign believes the scheme will enable more children to travel 
safely to school for the entire length of their journey.

This will also cut congestion and pollution, both considered big problems within the city.

County councillors will decided whether to implement the slower speed limit on Tuesday, November 6.
