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.
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.
At present the only approved location is in Carnon Downs, but other locations
across the parish are expected to be approved in due course.
Anyone interested in joining the team or seeking more information should contact Feock Parish Clerk, Debra Roberts on 01872 863333 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
Carnon Downs Highways Project Update - April 2019
The Parish Council last year wrote to residents in Carnon Downs to advise them of proposed changes to highways in the village (Forth Coth (bollards and planters to discourage parking blocking pavements), Bissoe Road (new pavement, double yellow lines on the corner of Bissoe Road and building out the pavement to make crossing safer) and Quenchwell Road (double yellow lines to stop parking) the full letter can be read on the news page of our website and the Council have considered the comments that they have received from residents. These highways changes have now been put in place in the village.
The Parish Council have also placed two black and gold flower planters on the pavement on
on Forth Coth to help control parking on the pavement and keep a walkway clear for pedestrians.
A further consultation on the route of the proposed pavement for Bissoe Road will be sent to
residents by Cornwall Council very shortly. This pavement will help to improve pedestrian
safety and will be funded by the Section 106 money from the Pengelly Meadows development.
