Community Speed Watch – call for volunteers!

The Parish Council is setting up a Community Speed Watch scheme. As a preliminary, a Traffic Survey was carried out by Wiltshire Council to determine the facts regarding traffic speeds in the villages. To do this, they placed rubber ‘Metro Count’ strips across the road at various places chosen by the Parish Council. These strips were placed in the villages before Christmas. The data has now been analysed and the summary results are shown below. The criteria for setting up a scheme have been met. The Wiltshire Police have therefore been asked to assist us in setting it up. This will involve training and the procurement of some equipment.

Our next step is to gather a team of volunteers. Jamie Fagan has agreed to take on the role of team leader so please contact him if you would like to volunteer as part of the team.
