20 mph zones - Upper Bloomfield Road

A 20 mph zone has been requested at the last two ODD Down PACT (Partners and Communities Together Meetings) meetings, as voted for by local Odd Down residents, for the area around Upper Bloomfield Road. Now, a petition has been handed to the council signed by 41 people which was collected in only two days.

Cllr Steve Hedges said "This is one of four areas in the Odd Down Ward that should be made a 20mph zone"

Cllr Nigel Roberts added " At two public meetings there has been a request for a 20mph to slow traffic down, especially outside the CO-OP and Upper Bloomfield Road shops which has high numbers of pedestrians in the vicinity. A number of surrounding villages have had 20 mph zones, why not Odd Down ?"
