Councillor Andrew McKinlay, said: “Cheltenham Borough Council is concerned about safety and speed on the town’s roads; and the effect that traffic has on the quality of the town’s air. 20mph limits are one of a number of measures that could help address these concerns and we want to know what you think.”

Councillor Max Wilkinson, said: "Reducing speed limits helps create calmer and more pleasant streets where people live, while improving air quality and encouraging people to walk and cycle.

"Walking and cycling is proven to make people happier and healthier, while cleaning our air helps the most vulnerable. I think achieving these aims of stronger communities, improved health and protecting vulnerable people is something we should all consider."
