Please see details of a petition started up by Cllr Matthew Robinson to restrict HGV access through Collingham:
The recent consultation regarding 20mph zones showed me there are many people in Collingham who feel frustrated at the HGV problem. So, I have decided to do three things:
- I am going to see Leeds City Council’s Chief Executive on Monday to discuss Highways issues but express the need for HGV restrictions
- I have written to the new Chair of the Outer North East Community Committee and asked for HGV bans and restrictions to be mapped and published and discussions about a new restriction to take place
- I have started a petition (link below) so residents can show their strength of feeling on this and sign up.
I just signed the petition "Leeds City Council: HGV restrictions on A659 inc Collingham, Harewood, Arthington and Pool in Wharfedale" and wanted to see if you could help by adding your name.
Our goal is to reach 100 signatures and we need more support. You can read more and sign the petition here
