Parish councils in North East Derbyshire club together to provide speed camera for local police
Ten parish councils in the North East Derbyshire area have clubbed together to provide a speed camera for police to use in a joint bid to make local roads safer. More »
Ashover, Heath and Holmewood, Morton, North Wingfield, Pilsley, Shirland and Higham, Stretton, Sutton cum Duckmanton, Tupton and Wingerworth parish councils have all contributed to the campaign, and provided funding for the camera and maintenance.
Joanne Taylor, a local clerk representing the councils, said: "Local residents regularly raise concerns regarding safety and speeding in their community and look to their local parish councillors for help. All the councils which have provided funding were keen to be involved in a pro-active scheme working alongside the police to help address these issues."Officers plan to use the camera in the area to help educate drivers, for enforcement checks and in regular speed awareness campaigns.
Sgt. Les Rawson, of the local Safer Neighbourhood policing teams, said: "Speeding and road safety is a concern to local residents and this device will be a real benefit to our teams, and the officers who work in the Clay Cross area."We already have a great partnership with the local parish councils and will use the camera as part of our ongoing commitment to keeping our roads safe, as well as focusing on any areas which may have been highlighted as an issue to the parish councils."
The camera was officially handed over by representatives from the local councils to at Clay Cross police station on Thursday, October 2.

The Parish Council has asked a local consultancy firm, Chimera Consulting, to look at the scope for developing the facilities at the Pilsley Sports Ground and how it might be able to meet the needs and demands of the local community in the future: for activities that help with people's fitness, physical activity and general health but are also fun and an opportunity for people to come together to take part in recreational activities.

Currently it mainly hosts football, cricket and bowls but there are opportunities to integrate additional facilities in keeping with the site. Some suggestions that have been made include a skate park facility, an outdoor climbing wall, rounders or softball, but it could also be used as a location for a cycling club or a walking group or other community uses. We don't want to duplicate existing facilities we have locally, but we do want to make better use of the Sports Ground and ensure we help to meet your needs.
You have the chance to say what you'd like to see being considered for the site and what you would take part in.
