Rooksdown Parish Council deployed a speedwatch camera on Park Prewett Road between 30th May & 17th June.
A summary of the data collected;
– On average 77% of vehicles daily were driving in excess of 21mph
– Highest speed registered 44mph.
We would request Rooksdown residents consider the following;
– To help make Rooksdown a safer place to live, take responsibility as a driver and adhere to the 20mph limit.
– If you have a view on the implementation and enforcement of 20mph limits, please complete the Hampshire County Council 20mph speed limit consultation. The consultation is open until Monday 12th September.
We are looking for someone with strong organisational skills, including attention to detail. You must have excellent communication and interpersonal skills, work effectively under your own initiative, and experience in managing financial information such as accounts and budgets is strongly preferable.

Attendance at evening meetings will be a requirement; the Parish Council has at least one evening meeting a month, usually the 4th Monday of the month. Reasonable notice will be given of any meeting to which you are required to attend.
Salary will depend on experience and qualifications.
Training will be offered where appropriate
You will be able to work flexibly, including at an office at the Rooksdown Community Centre, or at home, so long as the responsibilities of the role are performed satisfactorily.
