Community Speedwatch Lewes District

Following concerns from residents in across the district, in particular areas of the Nevill estate in Lewes, and areas of Newhaven, local residents have successfully set up a new Speedwatch Community group within these locations.

Officers went along to meet the volunteers and assist them in conducting speed checks across the district last weekend to document and record areas which could also benefit from having a local Community Speedwatch group.

A handful of drivers in Newhaven were recorded, as well as 10+ drivers in the Nevill area, all exceeding the 30mph – the registered owners of these vehicles recorded will be notified in writing of the offence by the Operation Crackdown Team; should a driver/owner continue to be recorded in areas by CSW and receive more letters; appropriate enforcement action will then be the next step.
