20’s Plenty for Newington
Following concerns from residents about the speed of traffic through the village, the Parish Council has started a petition to introduce a default 20 mph speed limit on all roads within the built-up area of Newington. The petition is in the Co-Op and the Chemist shop for people to sign and it will be presented to the next Swale Joint Transport Board on 10 September 2018. The Parish Council has arranged for this to be an agenda item, although no decision can be made at the meeting, it will be the start of the formal process to apply for a reduction in the speed limit.
