Tunbridge Wells WILL have its first residential 20mph zone!
We are very pleased to say that, through our
20's Plenty for Tunbridge Wells campaign working with
residents and Borough and County councillors,
Tunbridge Wells will be getting its first large 20mph zone
covering most of the St. John's residential area.
At Monday's (17th October) KCC/Tunbridge Wells Borough Council (TWBC) Joint Transport Board, due to overwhelming public support, the proposal was passed and KCC can now schedule the works to take place.
20's Plenty for Tunbridge Wells would like to thank Cllr. Peter Oakford for funding and backing the scheme, former TWBC Councillor David Scott for his ongoing support and campaign advice and the other Borough and County councillors for their cross-party support. But most of all, we would like to thank the residents of St. John's for responding in support of the proposal!
So, job done? Far from it. The demand from residents of other areas of Tunbridge Wells to live on a 20mph street has been overwhelming. However, 20's Plenty for Tunbridge Wells can't make this zone the first of many across the borough without your support. Please:

campaign for 20mph in your area of Tunbridge
asking for their support
We don't want St. John's to be the only 20mph zone in the Borough, we want the Borough to be 20mph where you live, work, shop, play and learn.
