Community Speedwatch

The Community Speed Watch team are now up and running. Over the coming weeks our fantastic volunteers will be out and about around the village at different times and locations with speed recording equipment. Any vehicle observed to be speeding will be reported to North Yorkshire Police who will decide what course of action to take in each case. Hopefully we will see a reduction in traffic speeding through the village. Please give them your support. More information about the scheme can be seen on this link…/r…/community-speed-watch/

Thank you to our volunteers who have been continuing to monitor speeding vehicles through the village. The information is forwarded to North Yorkshire Police each week who then take the appropriate action. Stuart Priestley who is co-ordinating the scheme in Melsonby has put together a document showing statistics from monitoring which has taken place between 19th May and 20th July which makes interesting reading. See link for details CSW Analysis 19May-20July 2017 for pdf  The Parish Council would like to thank all volunteers for their continued efforts in this scheme
