ePetition details

We the undersigned petition the council to introduce a 7.5 tonne weight restriction on heavy goods vehicles entering Holmer Green village. There has been a marked increase in large commercial vehicles travelling through the village, some towing very large trailers causing damage to the carriageway edges, verges and trees, particularly when meeting other (large) vehicles travelling in the opposite direction or when negotiating junctions etc.

Introducing a 7.5 tonne weight limit (except for delivery purposes within the village) at the entry points listed below will prevent HGVs using Holmer Green as an alternative to the main roads. The intention is to make the Village safer for residents, walkers and cyclists, and minimise damage to roads, verges, trees and property throughout the village.

The weight limit signs would be sited at the entrances to the village viz: Watchet Lane (at its junctions with Beech Tree and Wycombe Roads); Penfold Lane (at its junction with Winters Way); Sheepcote Dell and Earl Howe Roads (at their junctions with the A404).

This ePetition runs from 05/07/2021 to 02/08/2021.
