"Not suitable for HGVs Signs"

Wed, 01 Nov 2017 00:01 by Brian Cobb

Blue "Not Suitable for HGVs" signs.

During the past year one resident has expressed concerns at Council Meetings about the number of large lorries passing through Knossington. Local businesses have co-operated by instructing their delivery lorries to avoid Knossington. This has helped the situation but there are still some coming through. A resident has made an offer to purchase two blue signs, one would be positioned on the Owston Road, at the T-junction opposite Bruces Lane, and the other on the turn for Knossington on leaving Cold Overton. Currently the County Council are opposed to this even with this private offer. The County Council would need the support of the Parish Council in order to consider the proposal again. The Councillors are aware of differences of opinion on this issue and feel they cannot support it without first having sought the wishes of the villagers. More »

Therefore, the Councillors would appreciate your comments as to whether or not you are in support of this additional signage.

Please can you contact either myself or any of the Councillors – Nigel, George, Paul, Brian and Richard – and let us know whether or not you would wish to see these signs put in place. (Details of contact numbers are on the website – www.knossingtonandcoldovertonpc.org.uk.
