Speeding within Bamburgh

Over recent weeks, as well as parking, residents have commented on vehicles speeding

through the village. It has been suggested that such excessive speed is caused by, or is

exacerbated by, roads being clear of parked cars because of the additional double yellow


We need to be absolutely clear; there is only one thing responsible for a vehicle’s speed and

that is the driver. For the driver’s speed to be controlled, it is important to have effective

“traffic calming” measures in place.

Please see the attached document on Bamburgh Parish Councils thoughts, we would welcome your comments/suggestions please send email to


Traffic speeding will also be an agenda item at our forthcoming Parish Meeting on Tuesday 14th May at 6.30pm in Bamburgh Pavilion, All Welcome.
