Petition to Request a Speed Limit Change

Dear Residents of Canonsleigh,

We are excited to announce an important initiative that aims to enhance the safety and well-being of our community. A petition has been launched to request a speed limit change in Canonsleigh from the current 60 miles per hour to 30 miles per hour. We hope the petition garners significant support, as we believe that reducing the speed limit will bring a number of benefits to our village.

Here are some compelling reasons behind the proposal to lower the speed limit:

  1. SAFETY: The primary goal of this petition is to prioritise the safety of our residents, pedestrians, and motorists. By reducing the speed limit to 30 miles per hour, we aim to create a safer environment for everyone. Lower speeds will significantly reduce the risk of accidents and enhance overall road safety.
  2. PEDESTRIAN FRIENDLY: Burlescombe is a vibrant community with bustling roads. Lowering the speed limit will make our village more pedestrian-friendly, encouraging people to walk or cycle. This change will contribute to a healthier lifestyle and foster a stronger sense of community engagement.
  3. CHILD SAFETY: Many families reside in the village, and we must prioritise the safety of our children. Lowering the speed limit will provide a safer environment for children to play, walk to school, and participate in outdoor activities. By reducing the speed of vehicles, we can significantly decrease the risk of accidents involving our youngest residents.
  4. ENHANCED QUALITY OF LIFE: Lowering the speed limit in our villagewill contribute to an improved quality of life for all residents. The calmer traffic flow will create a more peaceful atmosphere, reduce noise pollution, and promote a sense of tranquillity in our neighbourhoods. This change will make our village an even more desirable place to live, fostering a greater sense of pride and well-being among its residents.
  5. ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS: By reducing the speed limit, we can also contribute to a greener and more sustainable future. Lower speeds lead to reduced fuel consumption and lower emissions, making our village a more environmentally friendly community. This change aligns with our commitment to addressing climate change and preserving our natural surroundings.

We encourage all residents to support this petition by signing it and encouraging your friends and neighbours to do the same. We believe that by standing together, we can make a significant difference in ensuring the safety and well-being of our community.

Your support is crucial in making this speed limit change a reality.

Thank you for your attention and dedication to creating a safer and more liveable Burlescombe. Together, we can build a community that prioritises safety and enhances our overall quality of life.
