Shaftesbury Town Council Request HGV Ban For St John’s Hill

Shaftesbury Town Council will ask Dorset Council Highways to consider a 7.5 tonne weight limit for St John’s Hill.

Councillors were sent a local campaign group’s report documenting road blockages and damage to property caused by heavy goods vehicles. But Dorset Council has warned of the cost of rerouting HGVs along Coles Lane.

Five councillors attended Tuesday’s virtual Planning meeting and four members supported the residents’ request.
