A petition to Kent County Council has been launched to support Sandgate Parish Council’s long standing campaign for a 20mph zone through Sandgate. That includes the A259 Sandgate Hill, Sandgate High Street and Sandgate Esplanade and better enforcement of the speed limit.
The petition has been set up using the Kent Petition scheme. It is designed to force Kent County Council to finally listen to our long standing campaign for Sandgate and implement a 20 mph scheme. The Kent Petition scheme says:
(a) Where the petition relates to a County Council matter that relates to a specific District Council area and contains at least 1,000 signatures it will be debated at the most appropriate local meeting (e.g. Joint Transportation Board).
(b) Between 2500 and 9999 signatures, the petition will be debated at the appropriate Cabinet Committee.
(c) 10,000 signatures or more, the petition will be debated at County Council.
We want as many signatures as we can to get this debated at the highest levels of Kent County Council.
