A COMMUNITY SPEED WATCH SCHEME FOR THE PARISH?
6th November 2019

A COMMUNITY SPEED WATCH SCHEME FOR THE PARISH?
Councillors discussed the potential for a Community Speed Watch scheme in the Parish at their October meeting. It is clear that speed reduction is a high priority for many local residents. Although VAS units have been introduced in Maesbrook, this was an expensive solution, not necessarily suitable for other areas of the Parish. Community Speed Watch (CSW) schemes are coordinated by the police but managed and run by volunteers in the local community. At specified locations, volunteers monitor the speed of passing vehicles with a hand-held speed detection device. Offending vehicles’ details are recorded on a log sheet, together with the speed recorded, and submitted to local neighbourhood policing teams who arrange for a warning letter to be sent to registered keepers.

There are a number of criteria that would have to be met in order to introduce such a scheme locally including:-
• There must be at least 6 volunteers in each scheme
• Speed checks must be conducted by at least 3 of those volunteers
• The area must have a 30 or 40 mph speed restriction

The Parish Council has therefore arranged for the local Community Speed Watch Coordinator, Mr Mark Booth, to speak about the scheme on Monday 27th January 2020 at 6pm in Kinnerley Parish Hall. Anyone who is interested in hearing more about the scheme, or becoming a volunteer, is encouraged to come along on the night.
