Police to monitor speeding in Glenfield

At the recent Glenwatch meeting in January the thorny subject of speeding cars in the village was discussed with the police. The problem persists on Station Road, Liberty Road and Elm Tree Avenue in particular. The police have been monitoring these roads and they will be doing speed checks over the coming weeks, you have been warned.

Also the problem of illegally parked cars was discussed. If a vehicle is parked on the road and taxed there is nothing the police can do. However if the vehicle is parked partially on the pavement and partially on the road then this is an offence. Glenwatch has received calls regarding illegally parked cars and vans in Piers Road, Sandown Close and Slatewalk Way in the last month alone. Some vehicles have been left unmoved for many weeks on end, the police have been informed.

New Neighbourhood Watch signs have been put up on lamp posts around Glenfield over the last few weeks, at the request of residents, thanks to the Parish Council for their help.

The next Glenwatch meeting is on Tuesday 6th March starting at 7.15pm at the Parish Council offices, Park House, Stamford Street – everyone welcome. Come along and hear the latest police information and have your say.
