The Council estimates the cost at around £7 million in total, but considers it will more than pay for itself in savings from a reduced number of road accidents, which it estimates cost the city around £5 million a year.
Their public consultation closes on Friday 29 November 2013.
Whatever your first reaction to this is, you can find out the reasoning behind it, the costs and timescale of introduction from the Councils website.
Also there you can branch to a questionnaire on the proposal, which as well as asking leading questions also gives you the opportunity to give your own thoughts on page 3 of 5 which asks:
“Do you have any other comments about 20mph speed limits? Please tell us below.”
You can also send your thoughts without using the questionnaire by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
