Here is the summary of the poll results that we sent to Derbyshire County Council:
The community website parwich.org, as well as providing readers with a link to Derbyshire County Council’s online consultation on the idea of 20mph speed limits in residential areas, offered readers the opportunity to to participate in a poll on our own site, see
The following figures were recorded at 12am Wednesday 30th September 2015:
In response to the general idea of 20mph speed limits in residential areas, 54 people participated with 78% in favour of the idea of 20mph speed limits.
There was also clear support for the idea of specific 20mph limits in our local villages:
- Alsop en le Dale 77.5% (31 out of 40)
- Ballidon 72% (23 out of 32)
- Parwich 77% (33 out of 43)
- Pikehall 70% (23 out of 33)
These recent poll results are consistent with issues raised by our readers over a number of years concerned about traffic and road safety in Parwich and Alsop en le Dale villages.
