One of the concerns we hear the most in the village, and unfortunately witness all too often is speeding.
Due to our location between two main trunk roads, the A120 and A12 we suffer a high volume of traffic moving between the two.
You will have no doubt already seen our commitment to speed reduction through the Speed Indicator Device (SID) we have in place. This can be moved to one of the three main entrances of Silver End but at present we have found it most effective on the Boars Tye Road entrance.
To take this a step further, we along with Essex Fire Service and Essex Police are restarting the Community Speed Watch initiative, this allows trained village volunteers to monitor speed themselves with fully calibrated speed detection equipment. Backed up by Essex Police whom coordinate the notifications to offenders as well as visits where necessary.
