Scarisbrick Speed Data

Scarisbrick Parish Council has two speed indicating devices (SpIDs) which are rotated around the eight locations listed below. The figures represent the latest data for each location. The SpIDs collect data from traffic approaching the unit from the front (incoming) and from behind (outgoing).

These figures were obtained with the SpID unit deployed which in itself is likely to affect drivers’ behaviour and reduce speeds. Speeds when the SpID is not deployed may be higher. The figures give an indication of the effect of the SpID during the time period stated and should NOT be considered as representative of any other time. The SpID unit has an “anti-race” facility and stops displaying speeds above a pre-selected level.

WEST LANCASHIRE ARMED FORCES COVENANT

Hi

My name is Paul Hennessy and I am the Armed Forces Champion for West Lancs, one of my responsibilities is delivering the Armed Forces Covenant for West Lancashire Borough Council.

The armed forces Covenant is a promise to the nation that the armed forces community should be treated fairly and face no disadvantage when accessing public and commercial services.

The covenant was established in 2011 and since then thousands of businesses, organisations and local authorities have signed into this.

Building on this the armed forces act 2021 is now creating a legal obligation on specified bodies in all four home nations of the UK, this is known as the Armed Forces Covenant Duty.

This though is only a part of my remit. I am also trying to reach out to all veterans and members who have served in the armed forces.  You may just want to talk to like-minded people, you may have issues that were part of your service and do not know who to contact or what help you can get.  Or you may just have questions?

If so, please contact:

Email: Cllr.p.hennessy@westlancs.gov.uk
