I am supporting my colleague Scott Mann MP who is introducing what is called a Ten Minute Rule Motion to give parish and town councils the power to change speed limits in their area if the public support their proposals via a local referendum.
This enables communities that have been ignored by Cornwall Council to take the situation in their own hands and address the concerns they have about speeding traffic. This is the beginning of a process that may not result in success. This motion, if successful, gives communities the freedom to change speed limits if they choose to.
