Following concerns of speeding in the village, the Parish Council arranged monitoring of traffic on Lidget Road. The outcome suggested that traffic was well within the 30mph speed limit, however, it was thought by some that the monitoring equipment was placed at the wrong end of Lidget Road.
Whilst we are investigating the possibility of making the speed limit 20mph throughout the village, we are now looking for volunteers to take part in a Community Speed Watch, probably in the area at the top of Lidget Road, near the Village Hall.
The site has to be pre-approved and anyone taking part will be fully trained on the equipment and what is required to be recorded. The presence of a team and equipment in itself can also act as a deterrent and encourage road users to take more care in the area.
If you would like to take part in a Community Speed Watch please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
