Residents are launching a campaign to introduce 20mph speed limits across Wanstead and South Woodford.
A public meeting will be held at Wanstead Library, Spratt Hall Road, on January, 31 in association with charity Living Streets and campaign group 20’s Plenty for Us.
The meeting features a panel of guest speakers from both organisations, road and transport police officers and Wanstead Councillor Paul Joseph Merry, who has campaigned for road safety with London Cycling Campaign.
Campaigner Elisa Brady, who lives in Wanstead, said: “We are campaigning for area-wide slower speeds and providing a platform for people to ask questions and express their views.
“We want to find out if there is significant community support for 20mph zones where people live, work, shop and play in our community.”
She added: “Attendance is not an automatic endorsement. All views are considered.”
The meeting is free to attend at starts at 7.30pm.
