Current local priorities
Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities that we will be concentrating on over the coming months:
You told us:The Valley beat team will over the next few months be working to try and reduce the issues associated heavy goods vehicles in weight restricted zones. We will be doing this by periods of education and liaison with local businesses and partners.
Issued: February 2017
What we are doing:Update June 2017:- The beat team have been working in conjunction with Castle Donington Parish Council to try and assist in getting a community "Lorry Watch" up to date. We have also addressed issues with an identified haulage firm shortcutting back through the Castle Donington area, which whilst legal was not appropriate to the size of the roads used. We continue to maintain liaison with the new East Midlands Strategic Rail Freight site managers to address issues when they are raised. The beat team have conducted a recent operation targetting the movement of HGV's in Hemington, 2 vehicles were checked, both were under the 7.5T weight limit.
