Residents of a south east Northumberland housing estate have won their battle to get a 20mph zone introduced in their estate.

People living on Totnes Drive and Ringwood Drive on the Parkside Grange and Glade Estates in Cramlington, have been signing a petition to get 20mph zones introduced.

Christine Dunbar,who organised the petition, said: “It’s is fantastic that, the petition that went before the South East Area Committee has been taken notice of and the reduced speed limit of 20 miles per hour is to implemented.

“There is real concern that someone could get hit by a speeding car coming into a very diverse housing estate with lots of children. “This is a victory for the community and common sense.”
