We do not have any traffic calming measures

First published in Letters

I AM writing concerning your story about traffic speed in Kennington (September 2).

Could I point out that there is a 30mph limit in all of Kennington. What we do not have in Upper Road is any traffic calming measures, i.e. road humps or speed cushions.

Perhaps the inconsiderate motorists who speed in built-up areas would feel differently had they caused or been involved in an accident that caused injury or worse.

Colin Charlett

Chairman

Kennington Parish Council

Oxford Mail: Nurse got me through some difficult times

THERE is much discussion at the present time about the details of the new local plans for the Vale and South Oxfordshire in relation to housing developments. It is instructive to look at how the previous local plans turned out.

Councillor Brighouse cares for community

Oxford Mail:

11:00am Thursday 20th November 2014

READING the Oxford Mail on November 5 I was shocked to learn that the Green Party deputy chair Alison Williams accused county council Labour group leader Liz Brighouse of not caring for the health of the people in Oxfordshire. What a load of nonsense.

Contrast in responses from councils

Oxford Mail: Nurse got me through some difficult times

I WONDER if any of your readers have the same experience I have when contacting the leaders of our councils?

Price for removing pylons is madness

Oxford Mail: Decision on Twinstead pylons announced

11:00am Thursday 20th November 2014

HOW remarkable that to get rid of electricity pylons we are contemplating paying £7m per pylon while at the same time we are subsiding the erection of towers for wind turbines. It’s a funny old world.

To the writer. Speak with your local police contact in Kennington and organise a local meeting of residents. You will soon then get some action from the city council. Just accepting a 30mph and putting up with idiots who do not observe it will get you nowhere in the short or long term .

Why would the city council have anything to do with with what happens over the border in Kennington?
