20mph limit for estate?

As a resident of Shipley View, I echo the concerns of many neighbours on the problem of speeding vehicles around the estate. 
I have asked highways officers at Matlock to investigate the possibility of putting a 20mph zone status to this area, some of the roads are very wide and prone to encourage reckless driving by people who are travelling from one side of the estate to the other. 
I contacted local police to highlight the issues and to pass on the report of some dangerous circuit racing on the estate which needs addressing too. 
Thank you for the community speed watch session- we would appreciate more of these please.
