The world is changing its perspective on what is an appropriate speed for motor vehicles wherever they share public spaces with people. 30km/h or 20mph is becoming the new global norm for urban and village streets shared between motors and people.
Gone are the days of designing our streets around cars and instead there is a recognition that a healthy city, town or village needs a far better balance in risk and convenience between the people inside and those outside motor vehicles. With most of the larger urban authorities having already set a 20mph limit as a norm it is increasingly the clear that what is good for residents in cities is also good for residents in towns and villages. Already thousands of parish councils have called on their county council to set a 20mph limit as a norm. Some counties have already done so.
This conference will feature several counties who have already or are saying 20’s Plenty for our places too. We will also feature a session where the Welsh Government will provide its plans to replace the national 30mph limit with a 20mph default with exceptions.
The conference will provide an in depth perspective of the challenges and opportunities for 20mph in shire counties and rural communities. It will reveal not only how it may be done successfully but also demonstrate the outcomes from such a change.
