Concerns Over Eligibility Test For St John’s Hill HGV Ban

Dorset Council says they are progressing with proposals to ban HGV vehicles from St John’s Hill.

There’s been a long running campaign by locals who want a traffic regulation preventing large lorries. Each year several vehicles become stuck on the hill and there’s been damaged reported to property, including walls.

Shaftesbury Town councillor John Lewer is unhappy at how the Dorchester authority will determine whether a restriction on vehicles above 7.5tonnes advances to the next stage.
