HGVs in Crawley - Response to OCC Consultation on Burford weight limit

posted 21 Jan 2021, 09:03 by James Walker   [ updated 21 Jan 2021, 14:29 ]

The experimental weight restriction in Burford came into force on 5 August 2020. OCC has issued a consultation document asking for any objections to be submitted before the closing date of 5 February 2021.

As a result of the Burford order, heavy goods vehicles that would have gone through the centre of Burford are having to find alternative routes. Many of them are using Dry Lane to get across the Windrush river. If you have been affected by the increase in HGVs coming though Crawley, there is an opportunity to register your concern or complaint. Please support the future of the village and send an email to

More information is provided in the documents linked below.
