Chelford Speedwatch is now active. Volunteers have recently received training from the Police and they will now undertake regular checks in the Village. The main aim of Speedwatch is to monitor the speed of traffic and hopefully encourage drivers to drive safely through the Village. It is not a method of deliberately trying to catch drivers out, but rather a means of trying to reduce the potential for accidents involving cars and pedestrians. However, speeding drivers will be reported to the Police.
During the Neighbourhood Plan consultations, one of the recurring themes in resident feedback was the need to reduce speeding traffic through the village and to keep everyone safe using the roads and pavements. Hence, Speedwatch is a response to those road safety concerns.
Speedwatch will operate on different days of the week in different locations in the Village and reports on their activity will be published.
Be aware --please drive safely through our Village and observe the speed limits.
