To increase the number of sites that can be treated the road safety partnership and the our Safer Neighbourhoods team have developed Community Speedwatch.
This allows parish council’s and other community groups to hire a vehicle activated sign for a site down to number 200 in the strategy, as long as there are at least 150 speed offenders a day.
These signs will only be put up where there are no other speed reduction measures in place – for example, safety cameras, other signs or police enforcement.
The exact location and settings for the sign will be agreed with the town/parish council or other organisation requesting them before the sign is put up.
The signs can be hired for a minimum of three months and our highways team will fit and remove them.
If the sign is moved within the hire period we will charge approximately £300 to cover the cost.
If you are interested in Community Speedwatch or would like more details please contact us on 01724 297478 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
