Traffic issues in the Parish & F.A.S.T. Project

(Feock Action on Speed & Traffic)

This page has been set up to keep residents up to date with the F.A.S.T. project.

We have been successful in being awarded some funding through Cornwall Council’s devolution fund to investigate what can be done to improve safety on our highways over the whole Parish. The F.A.S.T. project is a partnership project and we hope that the Parish Council, together with local residents and businesses can work together to help solve some of the issues. The Parish Council has also budgeted money for funding safety improvements in the parish. 

Consultation on Feock parking issues near to Loe Hill - October 2021

The proposal is to implement a ‘No waiting at any time’ restriction (double yellow lines) on both sides of the C road in the general area between Green Close and Tremarne Close.  The purpose is to improve road safety by preventing vehicles from parking in places which can impede the flow of traffic, restrict visibility and can cause conflict between traffic and vulnerable road users. 

 

Further details of the extents are shown on plan EDG2000_SN01 Loe Hill - link below. 

 

If you have any comments to make on the proposals, they need to be received by Thursday 4th November

Feock Parish now has its own Community Speedwatch team!

This initiative, which is sponsored and overseen by Devon and Cornwall Constabulary, involves trained members of the local community carrying out occasional speed monitoring at approved locations, using equipment provided by the police. It has been set up in response to concerns raised by residents about the level of speeding in the parish.

The information gathered, including the registration numbers of offending vehicles, is passed to the police, who will contact the owners of the vehicles. Initially this will  simply involve a notification letter, but repeat offences could lead to prosecution.  This is likely to be a rare event however - the main emphasis of the scheme is educational rather than punitive.

There are approved locations in Feock and Carnon Downs.

Anyone interested in joining the team or seeking more information should contact Feock Parish Clerk, Debra Roberts on 01872 863333 or email debra@feockparishcouncil.co.uk. Volunteers need to attend a 2 hour indoor training session and 3 on the road training sessions and have a DBS check carried out on you.
