Create a 20 mph zone in Oldfield Brow

We the undersigned petition the council to create a 20 mph zone in the vicinity of Oldfield Brow Primary School (namely Taylor Road, Hillcroft Road, Stamford Avenue, Crescent Road, The Crescent, St Mark's Avenue, Greenway and Stokoe Avenue) and also include within the 20 mph zone the top part of Oldfield road (from the Seamons road junction)

Residents and school parents feel strongly that the speed limit needs to be reduced around Oldfield Brow to keep children and adults safe. During busier times cars park on both sides of the surrounding roads which is unsafe for pedestrians. Due to limited parking some parents are forced to let their children out of their cars without accompanying them and the current speed limit poses a real risk. A 20 mph zone will also keep children safer heading to the Cowfield recreational area and will benefit the whole community.
Please reduce the speed limit and implement appropriate signage warning drivers.

On reaching 50 signatures An officer will investigate the matter further
