Neighbourhood Priorities

1. Parking
2. Speeding
3. Thefts/Burglary

Issue Date Tuesday 2nd July 2024

1. Parking The team has recently got all the key partners together to discuss the issues locally especially in the Castleton area around the Mam Tor area and Old Mam Tor Rd up to the turning circle. Although we will never solve the issues in the Valley due to the high number of visitors, we are hoping to ease the problems at peak times and raise awareness with partners. We are in contact with the councils Civil Parking Enforcement Team who are issuing many tickets, but we are encouraging the public to please report to Call Derbyshire on 01629 533190 or [email protected] to make them aware of any issues/locations.
2. Speeding We are encouraging locals to start a Community Speed Watch scheme in their area to help tackle the issue. Community Speed Watch is a scheme run by volunteers in communities where speeding and road safety is a concern. If you are interest in signing up, please contact your local Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) or contact the Speed Watch team by email: [email protected]
3. Thefts / Burglary This is always a priority for us due to the impact that it has on victims. Although these offences are again low in the area, but we heavily rely on the public reporting any suspicious activity at the time by calling 999 if occurring at the time, otherwise report online or by calling 101.
