detected significantly over the speed limit are sent warning letters by the Police.
Co-ordinator – Councillor Colin Boylett.
A Councillor receives flood warning information from the Environment Agency, and the
Emergency Planning Officer at Rother District Council, and ensures that any residents at risk
from any flooding get ample warning of any risks and assists as much as possible in getting
help if required.
