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.
Do you know of a volunteer group that devotes it’s time to helping others and deserves recognition? The Queen's Award for Voluntary Service is the highest award given to volunteer groups – the equivalent to an MBE.
