Sentinel speed camera

Residents often express concern over traffic speeds around the village, and some specific roads are a major concern.

At the most recent parish council meeting (5th November) it was noted that the Sentinel speed camera has now been repaired.

On a recent test run, just to make sure it was working, 81 cars were observed during a 1¼ hour period driving at over 35 mph (in a 30 mph zone) with five driving at over 45 mph and one at 50 mph. That's one car per minute breaking the speed limit and now on the list to receive a letter from the Neighbourhood Policing Team 😯

HPC is finalising plans for rolling out the volunteer training more widely, but there's no reason why those who are already trained can't join in straight away and book a time slot to use the camera, as long as it's not booked out to another village.
