Local speed limits bill

North Cornwall MP Scott Mann has successfully introduced his first legislative bill in Parliament to give parish and town councils the power to hold community referendums to alter speed limits.

Since taking office, Scott has met with constituents, parish councils and schools, and says he has noticed the clear need for empowerment of communities to set speed limits themselves to make their roads safer. These include the communities of Stratton, Werrington, St Teath and St Kew, which Scott mentioned in his speech.

Scott introduced the Bill through a Ten Minute Rule Motion after Prime Minister’s Questions on Wednesday, 18 November. Its short and long titles are as follows:

Speed Limits on Roads (Devolved Powers) Bill 

A Bill to amend Part VI of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, and the Local Authorities’ Traffic Orders (Procedure) (England and Wales) Regulations 1996, to make provision about the powers and duties of parish and town councils in relation to applying for speed limit orders; to provide for the conduct of local referendums to determine whether such applications should be made; and for connected purposes.  Read more

Withiel winners

Simon Coy and Pat Malone went to the Royal Geographical Society in London recently to receive a prestigious national navigation trophy from the Duke of Edinburgh.

Simon and Pat, both pilots, were awarded the British Airline Pilots Association Trophy for winning the South West area ‘TopNav’ competition, a national contest in which pilots navigate aircraft the old-fashioned way, using only chart, compass and stopwatch. The pair came within three points of winning the whole national contest, which was flown from three airfields – Bodmin, White Waltham near Maidenhead, and Sherburn-in-Elmet in Yorkshire.
