Support Paul Maynard MP's e-petition

Paul Maynard MP, elected at the 2010 general election as the Member of Parliament for Blackpool North and Cleveleys, is inviting support for an e-petition to force Blackpool Coucil to debate its road transport strategy, and in particular the congestion on Blackpool Promenade following the paved "shared space" area with its three zebra crossings and 20mph speed limit.
If 1,500 people sign the petition then the council has to debate the matter and Paul will get 5 minutes to present his case that Blackpool Council’s road management is not conducive to private investment and therefore is stopping jobs being created. It is affecting the reliability of bus services and increasing journey times for all transport users.
Classic Bus North West ask you to sign this petition. Just click on the link below and follow the instructions. It does not matter where you live, Blackpool, Cleveleys or any other part of the country. Each signature is as valid as the next, as the Council itself has made clear in guidance.
