Chelford Parish Council has had discussions with the police regarding the growing problem of speeding through the Village and on roads around the Village. Many residents have expressed concern for their safety. The police will be monitoring the situation and will take appropriate action with anyone not observing the restrictions.
In addition, the police are keen to set up a Community Speedwatch in Chelford, something which many other parishes have introduced. This would involve volunteers monitoring traffic speed in various Chelford locations at regular intervals. The Parish Council has expressed support for the initiative and is willing to purchase the required equipment. Volunteers are now needed to join a Community Speedwatch group. This will involve a training session for about an hour, to become familiar with the equipment and then offering limited periods of time to carry out the monitoring. Community Speed Watch seeks to promote safer driving in our local communities.
If you would like to help with a Community Speedwatch, please contact the Parish Clerk at:
Your help would be greatly appreciated.
