27th August 2014 Anthony Rae writes for FOE: The Halifax Courier of 22nd August reports: ‘The new Conservative Calderdale Council leadership have assured Labour members that they will implement the 20mph policy they were set to introduce.’
Well, actually , it was Friends of the Earth who asked for and received the assurance because it was we who put the question at Cabinet on 18th August. Our question and the reply from Cllr Scott Benton, Deputy Leader, is here.
Not that we mind at all who get’s the credit, and if any political party supports measures which will improve our environment – and in this case make it safer – then we’ll be nothing but pleased commande viagra en pharmacie. Another newspaper tells us that the implementation timetable will be as follows:
“The timescale has been put forward, with the 20mph limit as a default being rolled out across the borough in five phases. First the Savile Park, Skircoat Green and Southowram areas will see the 20mph limit introduced. In the summer of 2015 to spring 2016 it will be introduced in the Upper Valley, from Todmorden to Sowerby Bridge. Summer 2016 will see it extended to the Ovenden ward, then by early 2017 the Lower Valley – Brighouse, Elland and Hipperholme – will become 20mph areas. Finally, by autumn 2017 the final phase will see the Barkisland, Greetland, Ripponden areas to see speed limits reduced to 20mph.”
