Speed Checks – see also Safer Roads Partnership page

On 23 June 2016 the clerk and chairman of the Parish Council met with our Police Officer and PCSO S Tinkler to discuss speeding issues in Elmley Castle.  We pointed out those areas that gave greatest concern together with the times that appeared to present the higher frequency of speeding.  The discussion was summarised and sent to PCSO Tinkler on 15 August 2016.

On 22 August 2016 PCSO Tinkler wrote as follows:

I have received your e mail and have been working on speed checks in the area since we last spoke.  I have been aiming to look at different times of the day and days of the week to get a true reflection of the speeds but so far they have been averaging at 24-27 mph on each visit.  There have been a few over the 30 mph not so many as to cause an issue and the few noted have been within our tolerances.  I will continue doing more checks and come back to you in due course.

I have conducted further speed checks in Elmley Castle to include the rush hour and School drop off.

Following checks done today between 07.30 and 08.00 I have concluded that average speeds are below the 30 mph speed limit.  At this time this result will conclude our checks but we will monitor the situation with ad hoc checks.  These checks will be passed to the safer Roads Partnership.
