Chesterfield Discussion / 20 MPH Speed limits to our villages
« on: August 19, 2015, 04:58:54 PM »
With the young racers we have around at the moment in our village I'm thinking this isn't maybe such a bad idea.
Obviously the speed bumps Derbyshire has around are not enough.

Derbyshire County Council is reviewing the use of 20mph speed limits in Derbyshire following requests from a number of communities to introduce 20mph speed limits in their area.

Councils are encouraged by the Department for Transport to consider the introduction of more 20mph limits on residential streets (provided that they are not part of a major through route) and in other parts of the country some councils have introduced signed-only 20mph speed limits without speed humps.

The Council would like to hear your views about the possible introduction of 20mph speed limits on residential streets in Derbyshire.  Please note that local residents would be consulted before any 20mph limits were introduced in a particular area and any decision would take into account local circumstances.

Please tell us what you think.  Remember we are talking about 20mph speed limits, without speed humps, on residential streets that are not part of a major through route.

My father and mums brothers were all in the mines at some point, and I have an uncle who is still around who used to be on the salvage team.
I've actually been down a coal mine and think the miners earned every penny and more beside.
My uncle has a picture I really like of him and a work mate down the pit - very down to earth - one of these days he will remember to bring it up for me to scan into my PC and post on here.

It's lovely that you have followed in your fathers footsteps, I'll bet he's proud of you  :)

If it's dry we are thinking of going to Pilsley ( near Clay Cross ) for their Fete on August 29th.
I have a local history committee meeting on 31st but that will be done for 11 00am - anything else going on?

General Discussion / Re: New proposed taxi badge charges.

Are you saying some taxi's may be pulled out because of the fee Fly, all taxi drivers I have spoken to have said there were too many taxi's and it made earning a living wage tough.
i never could understand why so many have been allowed to trade around Chesterfield.

One would have to know how to work the system to commit any fraud, the system is so tight these days I'm surprised so many still manage it

Excellent picture OC and a fine looking gentleman. Thanks for posting.

Strange thing is Pete I have a  male cousin just a year younger than me and he looks just like our great grandfather - the genes carried on down the generations.

I watched and they didn't come over the village.
Did anyone see them and get a photo?

You're right OC - it was widened. I have photos of the widening in progress.

Can you share them please Pete?

The street also looks wider now or is that an illusion?
