Lib Dems secure backing to make Stockport’s roads safer

At Thursday’s meeting of the Full Council the Liberal Democrats secured backing to adopt “20’s Plenty” on Stockport’s residential roads.

Liberal Democrat Councillor Mark Roberts from Bredbury Green and Romiley, who brought the motion for debate, said:

“I was glad the other political groups could see the benefits our motion would bring to Stockport and supported our call for action. This was something we would have brought in immediately in if we hadn’t been blocked from forming an administration by the Conservatives and Labour working together after the local elections. It is too important an issue to delay, so I was happy to do some back seat driving of council road policy and force them to act!

“The current administration has been given a mandate by all councillors to work to introduce “20’s plenty” and tackle some of the systemic speeding issues across the borough, and we look forward to this being implemented.

“This really could save the lives of Stockport residents and prevent the heart break of losing a beloved pet on the road. The petition we created backing this is currently open, so people can still add their voice and help us maintain pressure on the Council to act.”
