It is hoped that Hethersett has enough volunteers to re-start a speedwatch scheme in the village.
A first appeal brought forward four volunteers and a fifth has responded to an appeal in the parish council's latest newsletter.
It is hoped that five volunteers will be enough to launch a new initiative, with volunteers being fully trained by Norfolk Constabulary.
Discussion is continuing on the make-up of the coming annual parish meeting at Hethersett on May 3.
Councillors are discussing changing the format in an attempt to attract more residents to the meeting which receives reports from a number of village groups including schools, Hethersett Environmental Action Team, the Memorial Playing Field Trustees, Hethersett Village Hall Trustees and Hethersett and the Meltons' Sports Association.

A decision on the format will be made in the near future.
This year marks the 10th anniversary of speedwatch in Norfolk, with the first starting at Hopton-on-Sea in Great Yarmouth.
