Petition is successful with 392 signatures
To: Barnet Council
20mph zone for Cromer Road School
03/10/19 We did it!! Finally!!
The 20mph limit was approved at the Council Meeting of the 3rd October
Thank you to the 700 local residents who signed the petition and supported the campaign, to the school, the staff, parents & carers & the local shops & of course to the local Labour Party members for their support.
We don’t know the timescales for implementation, as the new rules about public questions are really restrictive, but it will go out for statutory consultation initially.
The scheme includes an “unsuitable for heavy goods vehicles” sign at the start of Cromer Road, and a review & reset of the current Vehicle Activated Sign (which is pretty pointless where it is currently - set to go off when someone exceeds 30mph, sited within a short distance of the start of the road).
CCTV to enforce the school zig zags and the one way system have not yet been approved, but council officers have said they will come back with a proposal at a later meeting.
WELL DONE EVERYONE!!!
This isn’t the end of the road though. We'll need to keep following up with them to make sure they stick to their promises, which I fully intend to!
