The consultation on whether Worthing residents support a 20mph speed limit for residential streets in the town starts this week. West Sussex County Council is gauging the views of residents and business in the town.
As the first stage a letter is being posted to households and businesses in Worthing, asking them to tick ‘yes’ or ‘no’. The responses, accepted by postal return only, will help the Worthing County Local Committee decide if it should take the consultation to a second formal stage. The deadline for postal responses is Thursday July 31st.
Worthing County Local Committee Chairman Paul High said: “We need as many people in Worthing to respond to these letters as we can get.
“We must decide if more time and money should be committed towards investigating a 20mph limit in greater detail.
“The greater the number of responses, the more informed we will be as a committee when we make the decision.”
A public meeting to debate the issue is being staged between 6.00 pm and 7.30 pm on Tuesday May 27th at Worthing Library Lecture Theatre, Richmond Road, Worthing. This event will be ticket only – available at Worthing Library reception from Tuesday May 6th and limited to two per person.
