Thanks to requests from the Parish Council, the police have promised action to help curb vehicles speeding through the village. A letter from Northumbria Police says:
“I have been made aware of your concerns in relation to drivers speeding through Lowick village.
In the first instance I will allocate officers to attend the area and conduct speed checks / enforce the speed limit using our speed gun. I will also make the camera enforcement unit aware and forward them the most recent data which you sent through”

We are pleased to see that concerns are being taken seriously. Our approach to the police followed publicity in the Advertiser about record numbers of drivers being caught in Powburn by their camera unit.
We will shortly be meeeting with the County Council to discuss speed limits and further traffic calming measu
