Community Speed Watch Proposal

Rumburgh Parish Council are considering establishing a village Community Speed Watch scheme that will co-ordinate equipment and existing efforts with other local schemes already in operation.

It would be useful to establish:

1.  How much of an issue speeding traffic in Rumburgh is considered to be.

2.  Specific sections of road in the village where traffic speed is considered to be a nuisance or dangerous.

3.  Whether anyone has an interest in being actively involved in the scheme.

Philip Cockburn has offered to be the co-ordinator, gather information and interest and provide updates on progress and statistics. He can be contacted either by e-mail at phil@katemawdsley.com or by phone 01986 785444.
