Traffic in the village - can you help?

The Parish Council continues to try and get action taken on the amount and speed of traffic in the village. The Council used its vehicle activated sign to measure traffic on the Barkby Road and South Croxton Road in the first three months of this year. This showed that around 80% of vehicles on these roads were travelling above the speed limit and 40% at a speed of 47mph or over, the speed at which Community Speed Watch would report the vehicle to the police.

The Council has sent this data to the Charnwood Planning Authority, The County Council and the police and the following action can immediately be taken:

Community Speed Watch needs volunteers.

The police have given a positive response and have agreed to looking at speed checks in the village. They are particularly interested in working with a Community Speed Watch group. The County Council have also given their support to a Community Speed Watch group for Queniborough. Queniborough did have a Community Speed Watch group but this hasn't met since the previous co-ordinator had to give up. Community Speed Watch checks the speed of vehicles coming through the village and sends details of those exceeding speed limits to the police. They then send a letter to the driver advising them of the speed infringement. The group usually works on a rota over a two-week period twice a year. If you have a few hours to spare twice a year please do contact me because if a group can be reformed the Council can speak to the police about their additional support to start working with the group.

Speeding on the Barkby Road.

The response from the County Council on speeding on the Barkby Road and South Croxton Road was less encouraging. The County Council pointed out that although there is speeding on these roads their records show that there have only been three recorded incidents of personal injury resulting from traffic accidents in Queniborough in the last five years and these were in the village centre. They point out that in a time of austerity cuts there is no money available for any traffic calming on these roads given the record of personal injury there. The only opportunity to introduce a scheme is if money could be found from other sources. The Parish Council understands that a traffic calming scheme was part of the planning agreement when permission was granted to Gladman for the development on Barkby Road, The Parish Council will now be asking for the Highways Department and the Planning Authority to act and use this agreement to bring forward proposals for traffic calming on Barkby Road as a matter of urgency.

Heavy Lorries and parking on pavements.

The Parish Council has also asked for action to be taken to further monitor heavy lorries through the village and the problem of parking on pavements. » Less

Posters on the parks

Some of the pupils of Queniborough School and members of the Queniborough Cubs have been designing posters to help people enjoy the playing fields in the village by reminding them how to look after them. The children produced many posters and these will be displayed at the King George V and Rearsby Road Playing Fields over the summer holiday period. The Parish Council are very grateful to the children for their very colourful designs
