Community Speed Watch
Essex Police are currently looking for volunteers to join the “Community Speedwatch”. This is an initiative whereby members of the community can be trained by Essex Police and issued a Speed Detection device. Volunteers will then engage in checking the speed of vehicles at various locations around the villages where speed is of concern.

Rochford District Council - Pay for parking by mobile phone
Rochford District Council is currently promoting its pay by mobile phone facility, which was introduced last year at the same time the new pay and display machines where installed in all the car parks.
There are now various options for paying to park in the Council’s pay and display car parks, motorists can pay at the machines by using cash, credit or debit card or by wave and pay. There is a further option to pay by mobile phone, it is very quick and easy to use when paying to park.
The added benefits for using this option is that the motorist needs no cash or credit card to pay (once they have registered with Metric Mobile). There is no ticket to display on the vehicle and a text receipt will be sent to confirm the transaction has been accepted. A text reminder in also sent when the parking session is due to expire and gives the motorist the option of extending their parking session, this is ideal if delayed at the Doctors or hairdressers etc. as there is no need to return to the car to purchase a ticket.
