Community Speed Watch

This scheme helps to tackle speeding issues in 30mph and 40mph areas only.

It allows parish councils use temporary speed notices or speed indicating devices (SIDs). In some areas, they can carry out checks using speed guns or tripod mounted SIDs.

It costs £40 per application.

To apply, email [email protected] or call 01522 805800.

Approved applications

Parishes must purchase SIDs from a supplier. They are also responsible for moving them around the area.

We will provide up to six free passive roadside notices. Extra notices cost £10 each.

Parishes can also buy wheelie bin stickers. They cost 50p each.

The police will train and monitor volunteers to carry out speed checks.

The police will send letters of advice to the registered keeper of any vehicle exceeding the speed limit.
