Traffic Speed Through the Village - The speed of traffic through the village, on the A466 and Devauden Road both on four wheels and on two, is a cause for concern.

a) Operators from the Camera Safety Unit visit to monitor the situation and take action as necessary. The number of visits made and the time spent on location is determined by the results of the previous 6 months. So, if the location is found to be a high risk during one period, the number of visits and the time spent on each visit is increased for the following period.

The A466 recordings are now made from a van on the nursery car park and a van is also used on Devauden Road. 

b) The Speedwatch group of volunteers started in St Arvans in response to the Steering Group questionnaire in November 2015.  It shares its data with the police.  The group would welcome further volunteers.

The scheme operates in 20, 30 and 40 mph zones only and registration numbers are not recorded until above the legal speed limit + 1% e.g. 34 mph in a 30mph limit.

If speeding drivers have had a second warning letter within 12 months, a third incident would normally result in a visit by a police officer

The locations chosen for St. Arvans are:

  • The fountain (allowing drivers to be noted from 3 directions)
  • The bus stop near children’s nursery (two directions)
  • Near the BT box on Devauden Road. (two directions)

Refuse Collection

Residents often have questions such as:

  1. When is my household waste due for collection? 
  2. What goes in each waste bag/box?
  3. How do I get a special collection of large items organised?

Questions associated with waste and recycling personal to your needs are best answered by using the MCC website, where all the recent changes are fully explained, or by calling into the Hub (Chepstow Library) or phoning the Hub on 01291 635700.
