Green Party County Council Candidate Martin Luckhurst is joined by Green Party campaigners Harry Palmer and Mark Armitage to deliver a petition to Cllr John Horner ( Warwickshire County Council cabinet portfolio holder for community safety). The petition was to ask the County Council to place 20 mph speed limits around Clapham Terrace, Sydenham and St Anthony's primary schools in Willes (South Leamington), after concerns were raised by residents regarding speeding in the area. Martin and Green Party colleagues collected 741 signatures from local residents. Martin said 'Safety on our roads is really important, especially around our schools. Listening to the concerns of local residents about speeding in the area, it made sense to push the County Council to add 20mph speed limits around these schools. I will be very happy to see the wishes of the residents brought to fruition by the Council as one of many steps to make our community safer'.
