The Road Safety Grant scheme will enable voluntary groups, parish and town councils, charities and non-profit organisations to apply for a grant of up to £3000 to deliver safety measures aimed at improving road safety and reducing the number of fatal and serious injuries on the county’s road network.
Applicants can apply for funds to set up local traffic calming projects and Community Speedwatch schemes and/or those in applicable areas can apply for a separate grant to install Speed Indicator Devices (SIDs).
Commissioner Angelique Foster has promised to deliver stronger and more effective policing to tackle the priorities local people have identified. Road safety is among a series of key priorities featured in the Commissioner’s Police and Crime Plan after being frequently raised by the public as an issue of concern.
The Commissioner is investing additional resources to tackle the Fatal Four (speeding, drink/drug driving, seatbelts and mobile phones), to enable the force to deliver a robust and well-resourced roads policing unit and to ensure proactive speed enforcement is conducted on the county’s road network alongside a tougher approach to dangerous driving.
The Road Safety Grant scheme supports the Commissioner’s plans to create stronger and safer communities and enable local people to play a proactive role in road safety and crime prevention.
