Stanley & Stanley Common Community Speedwatch

Would you like to participate in the Stanley & Stanley Common Speedwatch Initiative? 

We are looking for volunteers to help monitor and record speeding vehicles in your neighbourhood to improve the health & safety of pedestrians, motorists and other road users.  The data collated could also potentially highlight any road safety issues. 

Full training will be given in association with the Derbyshire Police and your local Parish Council. 

Please contact the Community Speedwatch Area Co-Ordinator:
Colin Tomlinson  Tel: 0115 9301257

Community Speedwatch activity is a proactive solution to improve the safety and quality of life for everyone in the community.

Aims & Objectives: 

  • Reduce death & injury on the roads 
  • Improve the quality of life for local communities 
  • Reduce the speed of vehicles to the legal speed limit 
  • Increase public awareness of inappropriate speed
