For action to be taken the following thresholds must be met.

  • Community Speed Watch - 85th percentile speed of between 35.1 and 41.9 mph

  • Police Enforcement - 85th percentile speed of over 42 mph

This means that no further action will be taken.

The Parish Council is continuing to look at ways that we can improve road safety in the parishes.
