|Welcome to the website of 20's Plenty
Already over 12m people live in local authorities which are adopting or have
adopted this policy. Most importantly, through democratic debate those
communities have decided that "20's Plenty Where People Live". And it is
those same communities who have then changed their behaviour to drive
slower in residential streets and where people walk and cycle.
20's Plenty for Us is a 'not for profit' organisation and now have over 200 local campaigns around the country and many of
our most iconic cities in the UK have already adopted a 20mph limit for
most of their streets.
We quite simply campaign for 20mph to become the default speed limit on
residential and urban streets. This can be done on most streets without
the need for any physical calming and we accept that on some streets it
may be appropriate to have a higher limit based on the road, vulnerable
road users provision, etc. But any limit above 20mph should be a
considered decision based on local circumstances.
Our website can best be navigated using the buttons on the left. You
will find most of the issues around 20mph limits covered in our
"briefings" page. We hope the rest are self explanatory, but please have
a good explore.
But remember that we are available to answer any questions you have, so
just go to our contacts page for details.
We look forward to hearing from you.
20mph Conference - 'Time for 20'
Tues 18th February 2014 -
Camden Town Hall, London
The 5th National 20mph conference focuses on how to roll
It features speakers on signage rules, cases studies of implementations
to improve the public realm, healthy lifestyles and reduce casualties.
Learn from leading UK experts and the first authorities to implement
wide 20mph on how to get it right.
With so many of the UK’s iconic cities
and places implementing 20mph limits for most of their residential and
urban streets then our ‘Time for 20’ conference explores how the UK is
effectively in transition to a national limit of 20mph for restricted
road. The conference will look at key local and national issues for
local authorities and organisations :-
Is the 30mph blanket
approach to residential and urban speed limits so compromised that
it should be changed to 20mph?
What relaxations on
signage are expected in the new changes to the Traffic Signs
Regulations and General Directions and how can this substantially
reduce signage costs?
How is Public Health
changing the whole approach to managing our urban streets?
What is the experience
of local authorities who are implementing wide area 20mph limits?
What is the consensus
from national organisations representing local authorities?
What case studies
provide insight into developing best practice on 20mph roll-out?
What ways are
available to maximise compliance?
Chaired by Rod King MBE
Founder/Director of 20’s Plenty for Us, the morning comprises Graham
Hanson from the DfT on signage, a video with the Under Secretary Robert
Goodwill MP and Iain Simmons from City of London/LoTAG. Also case

effectiveness and best practice in implementing 20mph limits .

Camden Town Hall, London
a local authority fully considers all road users the only sensible
solution is that 20’s plenty where people live, work, shop, learn, walk
and cycle. This conference shows them how best to achieve that and also
puts it into the context of a developing national debate on what is best
for our communities.”
