Speeding in Stoke Bruerne

The Parish Council is still in discussion with NCC Highways as to what can be realistically achieved to slow traffic down through the Village and particularly in the 20-mph zone outside the School. In order to make sure that NCC Highways fully understand how serious this matter is and to try and get traffic calmed before a serious accident occurs residents are being asked to lodge requests for speed calming on the Northamptonshire County Council Street Doctor website. Just follow this link and select "request for traffic calming" from the dropdown menu. You will then be guided through the process which only takes a minute or so.

Please report ALL incidents involving vehicles to the Police

Speeding and volume of traffic is a big problem in Stoke Bruerne and the Parish Council has been putting a great deal of pressure on NCC Highways to try and get more traffic calming measures put in place. At the moment the Safer Roads Team at Northamptonshire Police have no incidents reported from Stoke Bruerne. Please report all incidents however small (clipped wing mirror, small coming together) to the Police by using the online form: or telephoning 101. By reporting small incidents and getting action we can hopefully prevent a much more serious incident.
