Latest News Hear the Interview with 20's Plenty Founder, Rod King MBE




We are delighted to provide details of our 4th Annual 20mph Conference.

The title of this event recognises that slower speeds contribute to a sense of "Place".

More than just a space but great places to live, work or play characterised by vibrant communities who respect each other's rights to get around safely.

We are particularly pleased with the excellent range of speakers presenting who can each provide real detail and experience in their specific areas.

We look forward to seeing you.
