Local safety schemes
Local Safety Schemes are designed to address potential personal injury accident problems. To qualify as a scheme, it must be shown that the site or area has a treatable problem and that the occurrence of personal injury accidents is likely to be reduced by the application of cost-effective engineering measures. Local Safety Schemes cannot be implemented where these criteria are not met.
The local Town or Parish Council is consulted at the start of the design process and is sent a copy of our initial proposals for comment. It is also informed as soon as a scheme in its area has been included in Cheshire East Council's programme.
The Traffic and Road Safety Team manage a database of personal injury collision incidents that occur on the highway in Cheshire East. The information is provided to us by Cheshire Constabulary, who are legally responsible for recording all relevant information to national standard. We use the data to identify road safety issues, which in turn guides the annual road safety investment and work programmes.
We can provide data to the public for commercial and educational purposes. This service may incur a charge depending on the use of data. To discuss your requirements, contact the Traffic and Road Safety Team.
For collision data for a particular location in Cheshire East request a personal injury collision search (MS Word, 121KB) and return it to Traffic and Road Safety Team, Floor 6, Delamere House, Delamere Street, Crewe CW1 2LL with the appropriate payment if applicable.
