Braintree: "No more lorries" say frustrated residents
1:00pm Monday 2nd September 2013 in News
Campaigners fighting the latest stage of a decade-long battle over HGVS using their narrow road claim a listed building has been scarred by the lorries.
Members of the Convent Lane and Broad Road Action Group (CLABRAG) are making objections to an application to allow more lorries to use Convent Lane to go to the Straits Mill industrial site.
As well as causing traffic problems residents claim the Chapel of Immaculate Conception, which stands on the corner of the lane with Broad Road, is being damaged by the HGVs.
CLABRAG chairman Jim Konig is encouraging the group’s 200 members to write objections to the traffic commissioner, log HGV movements and is contacting the district and county councillors to ask for their support.
