Winner selected for the 20’s Plenty car parking permit design!

Release Date: 27 January 2021

Schools were invited to take part in a competition to create a 20’s Plenty design to feature on the back of the Council's car parking permits

The fantastic winning design is by Myla who is in Year 3 at The Harrodian School in Barnes. The colourful design features a branch-clinging sloth – reminding residents of the 20mph speed limit across Richmond upon Thames. 

Cllr Alexander Ehmann, Chair of the Transport and Air Quality Committee for Richmond Council, said:

"Safety is the number one reason we have implemented a borough-wide 20mph speed limit. We want to make our streets as safe as possible for our vulnerable residents, including children, so we are delighted we could get them involved in our campaign to remind drivers of the speed limit and to help slow their speeds. 

"We received numerous designs from schools across the borough and selecting a winner was no easy feat. However, the sloth design stood out as a wonderful reminder that 20’s plenty and that everyone should be sticking to the speed limit to help improve road safety for drivers, cyclists and pedestrians in Richmond upon Thames. It also got a massive thumbs up from my three young boys, who thought it was ace."
