A 20mph speed limit could soon be introduced through the centre of Lasswade village, following a campaign by locals.

Janet Jerome, secretary of Lasswade Civic Society, presented a petition to a recent meeting of Midlothian Council’s petitions committee.

Signed by 250 locals, it called for the council to create ‘an enhanced and safe road environment’ for residents by introducing a ‘20’s Plenty’ limit on the A768 High Street and its associated feeder roads.

She said: “We are asking for a 20mph limit as a last resort.”
