We had a very good response and now have many volunteers. Speedwatch will take place in October - dates will be issued nearer to the time. Thank you to everyone who has volunteered.

In response to public requests regarding speeding on the A607 along Main Street, the Parish Council has decided to try to take advantage of the "Community Speed Watch" scheme.

Leicestershire County website has the criteria that the community would have to pass to get authorisation and the details of how it works. More »


  • Residents are trained to use a speed camera and operate in groups of 2 or 3.
  • The first implementation would be for 4 weeks, during which the Police issue letters to all those caught by the system.
  • If, as we know, this shows systematic speeding, the Police will then start enforcement for an unspecified period.
  • If and when the situation returns, the community can apply for the camera again for 2 weeks with subsequent enforcement thereafter.
  • This procedure can be repeated as often as necessary to improve safety in the village.


Key points to be allowed to access the scheme are that 20% of the population would need to sign a specific "Pledge of Support" (100 people) and there would have to be a minimum of 6 registered camera volunteers (maximum 16). More volunteers equals less time per individual. If these numbers are not achieved then the scheme cannot go ahead and there are no other actions available to the Parish Council.

The Parish Councilors representing Croxton Kerrial (Tricia Laurance, Peter Kinvig, Gerald Botterill and Ray Ranns) will call on residents to ask them to sign the pledge forms, which also include the details the County Council requires for those who are prepared to be camera volunteers. » Less
