Briefing: Area-wide 20mph neighbourhoods: a win, win, win for local authorities

• In January 2013 the government published a revised circular on Setting Local Speed Limits

• The number of local authorities adopting area-wide 20mph limits is increasing – around 11.5 million people already live in a 20mph committed area

• The Time for 20 and GO 20 campaigns are calling on the Department for Transport to recognise 20mph as the default speed in residential areas to make it cheaper for local authorities to implement the reduced speed limit

• A national conference called Time for 20mph will be held on 18 February 2014 in London

• This briefing will be of interest to transport planners, urban designers, elected members, road safety teams, fire and rescue authority members, police, public health teams and members of health and wellbeing boards.
