Following concerns raised by local people, Keith Holloway consulted residents in Lorna Grove and Dingle Grove on having a 20mph zone for the roads.
Keith’s survey suggested residents were strongly in favour so we asked the Council to kick off the formal process. In the Council consultation, more than 90% of residents who expressed a view said that they favoured a 20mph zone on the two roads.
The evidence we have is that 20mph zones do work in reducing the average speed of drivers by a few miles per hour. That might not sound like a lot but, if there’s an accident, it can make the difference between someone receiving a minor injury and them being very seriously injured – or worse.
The scheme will now come to the Cheadle Area Committee in May for approval.
