Are you on PUNCHLine?

10 May 2020

It is now VERY IMPORTANT that as many residents as possible receive the PUNCHLine. We are aware of a major planning application for a large development in Melton that is on the brink of being submitted (by the time you read this it may already have been!). The only realistic way we can alert residents to development such as this is through PUNCHLine. If you are not already receiving the PUNCHLine e-mails, please send an e-mail to punchline@uffordpunch.org.uk and we will get you signed up that day.

Community Speedwatch

14 February 2020

As residents of Ufford you will be aware that, like many other Suffolk villages, we are plagued by vehicles being driven above the speed limit through our village. This is especially noticeable along the High Street, Yarmouth Road and The Avenue. Following numerous complaints and a couple of accidents, the Parish Council asked the Safer Neighbourhood Team (part of Suffolk Constabulary) to carryout speed checks. The response from the SNT was very disappointing. Unfortunately they have very limited resources to carry out such checks, even in areas where speeding is prevalent.
