Community Speedwatch (CSW) is a national initiative where parishioners volunteer with the support of the Police to monitor the speeds of vehicles using speed detection devices.
Local volunteers, trained and supported by the Neighbourhood Policing Team worked with the PCSO, started our Community Speed Watch following discussions at the traffic meetings to improve the safety and quality of life for everyone in the community. The results of this initiative are reported to the Parish Council via the Traffic meetings and at monthly Parish Council meetings
Speeding continues to be a concern for many communities both urban and rural and the main A379 through Brixton village is no different.
Since the first lockdown in March 2020 the Police have suspended Speedwatch. However, further volunteers have been recruited and trained during 2020.
