More than 550 people have signed a petition supporting a 40mph speed limit along the A26 from Barnsgate Manor to Ashdown Place, Five Ash Down.
Campaign organisers say Charles Hendry MP has given his ‘unreserved support’ to their aim.
Referring to new Government guidance on speed limits published in January he said this gives greater weight to residents’ views and more freedom to local authorities to make decisions that best suit their communities.
