Current local priorities
Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities that we will be concentrating on over the coming months:
There are speeding vehicles on Croft Road into Cosby Village from the direction of the B4114.
Consultation has taken place with residents and a speed survey was completed on Croft Road.
The device was out from 22-29th March and during this time 82% of vehicles were found to be exceeding the National Police Chiefs Council (NPCC) enforcement threshold of 10% +2mph. This represents poor compliance with the limit. There has been one serious accident in the past 5 years on this road, between a vehicle and a horse and rider.
Date To mean speed % above limit % above limit + 15% above acpo85% (mph) Total
29/03/2017 41.5 97.1 24.6 81.9 (49) 39095
Issued: August 2017
What we are doing:Due to an accident combined with the level of speeding in this area we will assist the local community in policing the issue themselves and with support from the NPA’s volunteers (who can complete some speed checks), to endeavour to reduce the speed of traffic. Enquire with the Parish council to see if they are willing to pay for their own speed camera and other equipment that is required, so that their own residents who are unhappy with this matter can be empowered look towards helping themselves with this on-going problem. We will help arrange a training input to allow those in the local community to set up and run their own parish traffic watch. Parallel with this, the Road Safety Unit in partnership with County Highways will deploy the mobile Safety Camera Van on Croft Road to enforce the speed limits along that road.
