‘MAKE YOURSELF HEARD’

What to do if you need urgent police help through the 999 service, but can’t speak.

A campaign has been launched to raise awareness of how to call 999 when you are too frightened to speak out loud.

A350 Survey – Notton House School Junction

Concerns have been raised with Lacock Parish Council over the safety of crossing the A350 at Notton House School for pedestrians, cyclists etc. Concerns have also been raised by motorists turning onto and off the A350 here. This aim of this survey is to establish whether safety at this junction is a general concern. Your response is vital if you want action taken

Contravention of the 7.5 tonne weight restriction

Around Lacock Village, Mons Lane, Hither Way, Bowden Hill and Reybridge there is a 7.5 tonne weight restriction on all large vehicles entering this zone. This restriction is in place for the safety of road users & pedestrians and to preserve our historic bridges and buildings.

The Law is clear that ALL vehicles over 7.5 tonne, including tractors with trailers, are prohibited from using the roads in this zone, unless they need to gain access to deliver/collect goods or to work in the fields within this zone. Vehicles over 7.5 tonnes cannot use the zone to drive straight through to other destinations. But this is what is happening. Many vehicles over 7.5 tonnes, including tractors with trailers, are often being seen ignoring the 7.5 tonne restriction.

If you see any large Lorries and agricultural vehicles you believe are contravening the Law then:-
1. Make a note of the vehicle description with distinguishing markings (colour, make of vehicle or logo), registration number, place, date and time

2. Take a few photos on your mobile phone if you can, that may be easier
Report the incident to the police, dial 101 and give the details under
reference number 5418 0052 407 for the safety of us all.  The incident can also be reported by email  force.servicedesk@wiltshire.pnn.police.uk  again using the reference above.

Have you signed up to Community Messaging?

Wiltshire Police use an email alert system called Community Messaging, also known as Neighbourhood Alert, across Wiltshire and Swindon to provide real time information to subscribing residents and businesses.

This is a free service and once subscribed you can choose what sort of alert to receive and how to receive them. This way the alerts will be tailored specifically to your interests and delivered by email, text or phone.

Community Messaging allows Wiltshire Police, and carefully selected partners, to help keep communities better informed about police and crime updates affecting their local area. The messages can even be sent to individual postcodes.

It should be emphasised that Community Messaging is not a way of reporting crimes – always call 999 in an emergency or 101 in a non-emergency situation.  www.wiltsmessaging.co.uk
