Police Update

The beat team have visited NORTON MOTORCYCLES, MILLER HOMES and CHASETOWN CIVIL ENGINEERING following residents' complaints about speeding on Park Lane and HGV's cutting through The Green/Darsway housing estate, an unsuitable route linking the two CHASETOWN relief road development entrances.

Both MILLERS and CHASETOWN (who have already been contacted by the Parish Council) have alternative usable routes in place for ALL of their respective delivery drivers, whether employed direct or as independent suppliers.

This route does not enter any of the housing estates in the village and ALL drivers/suppliers are sent maps of the preferred routes away from residential areas.

Both companies are pro-active in supporting the community during the development period and welcome residents reporting breaches of this agreement directly to them.

MILLERS have a 'HOTLINE' residents reporting number – 0800 0836867 (

CHASETOWN can be contacted via the project manager Alan Jones :

Both companies will take action against any infringements by individual drivers, both stating that drivers will be removed and banned from site, therefore losing any credibility.

Whilst site HGV's have entered the area perfectly legally (as they are delivering in the area), both developers are advising ALL drivers accordingly, in respect of the residents wishes.

MILLER HOMES Planning director will be approached to supply and erect appropriate signage.

Speed checks / HGV infringements will be carried out on Park Lane by Police in the near future, however resident MAY want to consider forming a Community Speed Watch group. Such a group has been successful in reducing speeding in the villages of Belton and Swannington, which has been followed up with Police enforcement action.


I will be only too happy to assist with any help setting this up.
