Construction Traffic through the Village

A number of residents have reported that heavy lorries going to the Cank Farm site are continuing to travel through the village. This is despite the matter being reported to Spitfire Homes.

To be fair Spitfire’s contractor has put up signs on Vicarage Hill advising the drivers of lorries not to go through the village. However, to the best of my knowledge there are none on Tom Hill or Bates Lane. Also, there are no contact details, either phone or email, to allow residents to report such journeys.

When approached by the Association Spitfire refused at first to provide such details, but eventually – and reluctantly – they suggest their general email address:

Stratford District Council has confirmed to us that it was a condition of the original outline planning permission that construction traffic should not travel through the village. It is therefore an matter for SDC’s Enforcement team.

Any residents who wish to complain about such traffic should note details of the time the violation occurred, a registration number if possible, any vehicle company name and a photograph again if possible.

These details should be passed to the Parish Council on 703200 or
