I live in Hangleton and we have just received the ‘20mph pack’ from the council.

I thought the council always had problems balancing their books, either needing to make cuts or needing to increase our tax so what I would like to know is how much is it all costing ie painting the 20mph on the roads, putting up signs at both ends of a street, the printing and postage of all these ‘consultation forms and not to mention the administration incurred.

Is there anyone who can give me a breakdown of these costs, and can the council tell us why it feels it is essential to fork out this money on something which most people don’t want and when there is so much financial hardship ?
