Living Streets – the charity for everyday walking – is starting an exciting new project to work with four communities across Scotland to help them introduce a 20mph speed limit area in their community.
The project will work with local authorities, community organisations, residents and other interest groups to support the role everyone can play in introducing lower speed limits.
Barbara Allan Living Streets Project Co-ordinator said: ‘We know many communities – in our cities, towns and villages are concerned about speed. We also know that reducing speed makes pedestrians feel safer, encourages more people to walk and cycle – and gives people more time to talk to each other and get to know their neighbours.’
Living Streets is now looking for communities who would like to be involved in the project over the next 12 months. If you are involved in a group or local authority which is trying to get a 20 mph area introduced, please get in touch with Barbara Barbara.Allan@livingstreets.org.uk to find out more.
