It’s your vote

Do you want a 20mph speed limit in your area?

Transport chiefs are set to go back to the drawing board after a negative response to plans to introduce a town-wide 20mph speed limit in residential areas.

Hartlepool Borough Council launched a consultation earlier this summer to see if there was much support for their plans.

But due to the low and negative response, officers will instead look to work with councillors to see if they can target specific areas of town. Despite a well publicised consultation, just 62 people responded.
