This project was funded on 06 Mar 2019!

Following a serious road incident, the St Leonard's Road residents group came together to form a residents' road safety group who are now taking part in community speedwatch. They have been working in partnership with Safer Road Partnership and have received the necessary training and accreditation to supplement their work. It has been recommend to invest a Speed Indicator Device (SID) for use in the ward.

What we'll deliver:

  • The mobile SID will also be utilised in the un-parished parts of Horsham town
  • To reduce speeds and improve road safety on St Leonards Road
  • Raise awareness of road users' safety and improve the safety of Heron Way Primary School children

Why it's a great idea:

It will bring the community together to tackle and reduce anti-social driving and improve safety, initially for the residents and drivers of St Leonards Road plus Heron Way and Forest school children in the area. The mobile device will serve a wide area in the un-parished parts of Horsham town, providing a valuable resource.

Steps to get it done:

  • Form a community group
  • Purchase SID
