IN THE LIGHT OF TRAGIC ACCIDENT ON NORMANTON HILL 09/05/2014 IN WHICH 14 YEAR OLD JASMYN CHAN LOST HER LIFE.

I HAVE HAD CONCERNS REGARDING NORMANTON HILL FOR MANY YEARS, IT WAS ONLY IN JANUARY THIS YEAR THAT I SENT EMAILS TO LOCAL COUNCILORS CALLING FOR A SCHOOL CROSSING PATROL PERSON [NO REPLACEMENT SINCE PHIL RETIRED LAST OCTOBER] STATING MY PERSONAL CONCERNS OF THE EXCESSIVE SPEEDS THAT VECHICLES ACHIEVE ON NORMANTON HILL, CONCEALED ENTRANCE TO RICHMOND PARK , NARROW PAVEMENTS.

A SCHOOL PATROL PERSON DOES NOT COVER OUT OF SCHOOL HOURS.HOWEVER THE IMPORTANT ISSUES I RAISED WERE NEVER ACTED UPON... I HAVE ONLY RECENTLY FOUND OUT THAT I AM NOT THE ONLY INDIVIDUAL TO RAISE CONCERNS TO LOCAL COUNCILORS IN PAST YEARS WITH REGARDS TO EXCESSIVE SPEEDS, NARROW PAVEMENTS AND THE FACT CHILDREN OR ANYONE WISHING  ACCESS TO THIS CONCEALED ENTRANCE TO RICHMOND PARK HAVE TO NEGIOTATE THIS VERY BUSY STRETCH OF ROAD ON NORMANTON HILL.

MY HOUSE IS ONLY ONE OF TWO AND SITUATED IN THE CONCEALED ENTRANCE TO NORMANTON HILL, SO I AM MORE THAN FULLY AWARE OF THESE CONCERNS. SO MUCH SO THAT IN JANUARY MY EMAILS STATED THAT I FEARED THAT "SOME CHILD SOONER OR LATER MAYBE INVOLVED IN A SERIOUS ACCIDENT" ..

STATEMENT OF PAPER PETITION:

WE. THE UNDERSIGNED, ARE CONCERNED CITIZENS AND DEMAND THAT SHEFFIELD CITY COUNCIL [HIGHWAYS AUTHORITY] INSTALL CONTROLLED CROSSING AND SPEED RESTRICTIONS, SPEED LIMITS WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT. WE HAVE HAD CONCERNS FOR MANY YEARS, REGARDING EXCESSIVE SPEEDS THAT VECHICLES ACHIEVE ON NORMANTON HILL, WHICH IS A VERY BUSY STRETCH OF ROAD, COMPOUNDED BY NARROW PAVEMENTS AND THE CONCEALED ENTRANCE TO RICHMOND PARK.
