A NUMBER of Clayton residents have objected to plans to introduce a 20mph zone in the village.

Last year Bradford Council proposed a number of traffic calming measures on Clayton Lane, as well as the introduction of 20 mph limits on numerous streets in the area.

Next Wednesday Bradford Council's Bradford West Area Committee will hear objections to the plans before whether they decide if the zones should be introduced.

During a consultation earlier this year, 12 people supported the proposals and five objected to them. Objectors claimed the 20mph limits won't have any impact, would be difficult to enforce and one claiming there is no inconsiderate driving in Clayton other than on The Avenue.

Another said the zones would cause "frustration" for drivers, and one argued speed cameras would be more useful.

Highways officers maintain that the measures "will help encourage safe driver behaviour and protect vulnerable road users thus encouraging more physical activity such as walking and cycling."

If the meeting goes ahead, members will be advised to approve the plans.

If they agree with Highways Officer recommendations there will be one concession, however. Endsleigh Place, a short, narrow un-made access road will be removed from the list of proposed 20mph streets.

The committee is due to meet in City Hall at 6pm next Wednesday, although that may change due to the Coronavirus concerns.
