Dear Resident,

Firstly may we take this opportunity to wish all Swinefleet residents a very Happy New Year.

Swinefleet Parish Council is very much aware of the concerns raised by residents regarding speeding vehicles through our village and at our Parish Council meeting held on 20th November we discussed and agreed to explore an opportunity to launch a Community Speed Watch Scheme in Swinefleet and possibly work with Reedness and Twin Rivers Parishes also.

The Community Speedwatch Scheme involves local volunteers who would be trained and approved to operate speed monitoring in approved sites of concern. The scheme was approved by the Police and Crime Commissioner and the Chief Constable of Humberside Police. In December agreement was reached for the scheme to be adopted by Safer Roads Humber, with funding for the first year provided by the Police and Crime Commissioner.

Safer Roads Humber is the Humberside road safety partnership and has managed speed enforcement throughout the area since 2007, including existing fixed and mobile safety cameras, and provide training and speed awareness courses. The Community Speed Watch scheme will be based within Safer Roads Humber and will have access to information systems and mutual support to manage the administration process. A training scheme will be developed for community volunteers, Community Speed Watch will work with unitary authorities and communities to identify suitable roadside sites to operate the scheme and volunteers will be fully supported. During the first year the programme will be led by a Humberside Police Chief Inspector supported by a fulltime Speed Watch coordinator. It will be coordinated through Town and Parish Councils.

In order for the Swinefleet scheme to advance we need volunteers to be trained and willing to run the scheme. As a concerned resident if you feel you would like to be trained and be involved in the Swinefleet Community Speedwatch Scheme please contact:

Mrs. S Belton,

Clerk to Swinefleet Parish Council
