Let's make the Ampthill community a safer place!

 Welcome to your community safety website! Established in 2006 as an offshoot of REVAMP (Ampthill) Ltd., the ACSG has spread its wings considerably. We intend to use this website to tell you how we suppport local authorities in their duty to provide a safe living and working environment in our town and larger community.

 Please let us know your local safety concerns!

Station Road Questionnaire

Ampthill Community Safety Group would like to thank everyone

who took part in the above.  The results have taken some time to

evaluate because of the way the questionnaire was structured. 

·      The preferred option is for parking restrictions to be introduced at busy school times.

·      Removing the southern footpath came second.

·      Priory built-outs came third.

·      Creating a one way loop around The Crescent came last.

Residents made other suggestions, for example with regard to

access and egress from Station Road, traffic calming and doing a

survey of how children get to school (walking or by car).

 

These results are now with Ampthill Town Council for them to take

forward to Central Bedfordshire Council.  Hopefully a decision will

be taken as soon as possible to remedy this potentially dangerous

situation for school children walking to and from The Firs and

Alameda Schools.
