More 20mph zones likely

MORE 20mph zones could be introduced in the Harrogate district, after the borough council said officers should look into the issue.

On Wednesday, members of Harrogate Council voted to urge North Yorkshire’s highways department to investigate the matter.

Coun Reg Marsh had said officers should “start to look at this issue as soon as possible, for the safety of all our residents, with a view to such zones being introduced across all residential areas of the district”.

A report by cabinet member for planning, Coun Richard Cooper, shared this view, with councillors voting to approve it.
