A ban on HGVs in the Mayfield Valley has been approved.


Following the submission of the report to the Highway Cabinet Member Decision Session on the 9th October 2014 describing the measures to restrict Heavy Goods Vehicle traffic from travelling through the area known as Mayfield Valley and setting out officer responses to two objections, it was resolved that; having considered the responses and objections to the proposed Traffic Regulation Order, the reasons set out in the report for making the Traffic Regulation Order outweigh any unresolved objections and the Traffic regulation Order described in the report be made in accordance with the Road Traffic regulation Act 1984 including associated signing to be introduced when funding from the LTP is made available.

The scheme has now been issued for construction and works should commence in the near future.
