Date set for villagers’ vote on speed bumps
A DATE was today (Tuesday) set for villagers to vote on whether a set of controversial traffic calming measures in Ickleford should be removed.
The poll, which will be held on Friday, July 15, is being held independently by North Herts District Council (NHDC) Electoral Services.
The official question will ask residents if: ‘Provided there is a pedestrian crossing outside the school, do you want all road humps (16 road cushions and three flat-top humps) in Ickleford removed?’
Although the result is not binding, it could provide substance for future action.
Adrian Johnson, who has campaigned against the bumps, told The Comet: “[It] is a fair indicator that this matter is not clear cut in our village.

“Now the poll will provide the opportunity for people’s view to be properly considered.”
Residents will not receive notification in the post, and there is no proxy or postal voting.
