Local Policing Priorities

Local area: Coedway B4393

Date agreed: 01 January 2017

Action

Concerns were raised by community members at Coedway in relation to speeding along the B4393 through the village.

As a result a group of volunteers from the village formed a Community Speed Watch (CSW) group with support from Welshpool Rural Neighbourhood Policing Team monitor speeds of vehicles in their village.

Vehicles exceeding the speed limit are referred to the NPT Officers with the aim of educating drivers rather than prosecuting.

 

Speeding is a concern for many communities, and Community Speed Watches assist in recording the level of speeding in an area which in turn will assist in identifying the need for more traditional speed enforcement by the Roads Policing Unit or even installation of Traffic Calming measures, such as the speed activated flashing signs.

 

The emphasis is very much on raising awareness of speeding in an area to drivers, with drivers exceeding the speed limit receiving letters advising them they have passed through a CSW area.

 

All the equipment and training is provided, and you only need a minimum of three adults aged 18 and over to set one up. Having concluded a successful trial in Ceredigion the scheme is being rolled out across Dyfed Powys in the coming months.

 

If you are interested in setting a Speed Watch up in your area, or would just like some more details please ring 101, leaving your contact details and the name of the town or village, and your details will be passed onto your local Neighbourhood Policing Team or alternatively you can obtain their contact details from the Dyfed Powys Police website.

Local area: Criggon Lane, Trewern

Date agreed: 02 June 2018

Action

Concerns have been raised regarding vehicle obstruction of the pavement which runs adjacent to Criggon Lane. This is causing difficulty for elderly residents, and pushchairs wishing to use the footpath, resulting in having to walk on the road to pass the vehicles.

Updates

12 June 2018

A letter has been delivered to the residents of Criggon Lane in the first instance, informing them of concerns raised, as some of the vehicles causing the obstruction were associated with properties along the lane.

In order to have a proportionate response to the matter, a request has been made to ensure any further instances of obstruction are avoided.
