Reedness Parish Council are concerned about and continually receive complaints about speeding motorists through our village. In an effort to stop this we are to hire a "Speed Indicator Device" from ERYC which will be placed at each end of the village and will hopefully be installed in September.

This machine will hopefully make motorists more aware of their speed and slow down accordingly.

Can we also ask residents to remain vigilant and report offenders to the police on 101. The police require as much detail as possible ie car registration number,time/date of offence etc.

The parish council consists of 5 voluntary councillors and cannot eradicate this problem without your help, information and assistance.


Reedness Parish Council have now provided a new litter bin in the village. The new bin is situated across the road from the Kingdom Lane public footpath entrance. This bin can also be used to place any dog litter bags too. The bin will be emptied by ERYC . 


Reedness Parish council has been alerted to more dog fouling within the village and would like to remind dog owners that if your dog fouls in a public place then please be courteous and pick it up. 

If you see dog fouling then please report via the link below. This will take you to the East Riding dog control page where you can report incidences of dog fouling and request cleansing of an area where dog fouling is present


The ERYC dog warden is Stuart Allen and he can be contacted on 01482 396360 or emailed at
