Arlesey Speed Watch receive new detection equipment.

Speed detection kits worth £22,000 have been purchased by Central Bedfordshire Council for local communities to use to help stop speeding traffic in their neighbourhoods.

The council has been working with Bedfordshire Police to identify priority areas across Central Bedfordshire. As a result, speed detection devices were given out by the council to Community Speed Watch representatives from Arlesey, Stanbridge, Caddington, Pulloxhill, Meppershall, Wrestlingworth, Husborne Crawley, Maulden and Fairfield on Friday (7 December).

The Community Speed Watch scheme allows volunteers to check and record driver speeds within 20, 30 or 40mph speed limit zones. The devices will be used by local volunteers who have been trained by the police. The data they collect is passed to the police, who then arrange for the registered keeper of the vehicle to be written to, informing them that their vehicle was detected exceeding the speed limit. The police will take further action for persistent speeders. The volunteer patrols can act as a deterrent to speeding and help to improve the safety of road-users.

Cllr Jeremy Wallace reports: “As a town councillor in Arlesey I was aware a scheme had previously been in existence, but the lack of equipment caused too many issues and it closed down.  It took many months to get trained and restart, but eventually I acquired a team of seven eager volunteers and we hold weekly sessions around Arlesey.  I believe Speed Watch has been successful and effective in reducing speeding in the village hot spots.  Residents are now aware of us, are generally supportive and hopefully drive slower.  Having our own machine instead of sharing with many other areas will make administration of our scheme much simpler.”

Becoming a Central Bedfordshire Councillor

Could you be the voice of your community?

If you’ve ever thought that you would like to represent the interests of your local community and help shape decisions on the services where you live or work, then becoming a Central Bedfordshire councillor is a great way to make a difference.

Perhaps you think that ‘you’re not councillor material’ as you don’t belong to a political party or you don’t see yourself as a ‘stereotypical’ councillor. Central Bedfordshire Council wants its residents to be well represented and believes that it is important that councillors reflect the communities they serve and bring a broad range of skills and life experience.

You can find out more at

To help people to decide if entering the political arena is for them, a new booklet has been produced which, amongst other things, explains in detail who is eligible to stand, the role of a councillor and what are the steps needed to become a candidate.  This is available either as a pdf document or you can request a hard copy  emailing

Attend our event for prospective candidates on 14 January 2019

We have arranged an informal event as we recognise there’s value in talking to councillors face-to-face to find out what’s actually involved, in terms of the time and level of commitment that it takes to be an effective councillor. Potential candidates can come along to Priory House at 6pm on 14 January to hear first-hand from councillors, to ask questions and seek advice which should help them to decide if they want to represent their community.

Potential candidates can register their interest in attending the event or receiving further information at
