Lorry Watch is a scheme operated by Nottinghamshire County Council using local people to detect the misuse of weight restricted routes by heavy goods vehicles.
Cotgrave now has a 7.5 tonne weight limit on all approaches to the village. All appropriate signs have been erected. For the scheme to work successfully it will need the help of residents in reporting any overweight lorries they see.
The details you need are - place, time, date, vehicle registration number, name of the road and company owning the vehicle if possible.
Please bear in mind that although this applies to vehciles over 7.5 tonnes, large vehicles making deliveries etc will be allowed to enter.
Our Development Control Committee meets every month to discuss and decide on planning applications. Some planning applications are decided by our staff as they are straightforward and non-controversial. But some applications attract more interest and concern. We let you know about the planning decisions that we think are of most interest after each committee – we post information on our website and on social media. Every year, we determine well over 1,000 planning applications, ranging from domestic extensions to large housing schemes and new business premises.
Rushcliffe has recently adopted the first part of its Local Plan. This outlines an overall strategy for where new homes should be built by 2028. The plan includes a site for around 1,500 new homes in Edwalton to the east of Sharphill Wood.
