We have an increasing number of e-scooters being used in Fairfield.
We understand that buying an e-scooter can be tempting, especially as you can get them from many popular retailers.
However the current law is clear, you can only buy one, but can’t ride it on a UK public road, cycle lane or pavement. The only place e-scooters can be used is on private land with the land owners permission.
It is dangerous to ride on the path/paving/car parks around the Fairfield as people are entering and exiting the buildings/pathways and recreation spaces from various points at all times.
If your young person has an e-scooter please make sure they know the law and ride it responsibly.
In emergency dial 999. For non urgent matters you can dial 101 or report using the online system on the Bedfordshire Police website.
Central Bedfordshire Council have a 24/7 phone line to deal with emergency highways matters such as fallen trees blocking a road, traffic light failures etc. Please contact them on 0300 300 8049.
The out of hours number is 111. They will direct you to an out-of-hours doctor if required.
