Councillor Nick Sandford, leader of the Peterborough Liberal Democrats presented a motion to full council on Wednesday last week. With cross-party support, he requested that an enquiry be undertaken by the Council into the possibility of introducing a 20 mph speed limit in all residential streets in the City.
Councillor John Shearman is a long time supporter of the 20s Plenty Where People Live campaign. He spoke in favour of the motion and stressed the need for the 20mph limit to apply to all residential areas and not just to selected parts of the City.
Council agreed. The enquiry will take up to twelve months and Councillor John Shearman will ensure residents across Park Ward are fully consulted on the possible introduction of the 20mph limit.

This follows the recent undertaking John has been given that a full review will be conducted on the traffic situation along the through-route from Eastfield Road to Dogsthorpe Road along Princes Gardens, Princes Gate and Princes Street.
On 29th March (Good Friday) a young father of two was killed at the junction of Broadway and Princes Street.
