Lewes road TRO Consultation Report

Published: 05 November 2021

The restriction would prohibit vehicles greater than 7.5T from using the route, except for local access to ensure that local businesses, agricultural vehicles and emergency services (e.g. West Sussex Fire & Rescue appliances) remain able to freely access and pass-through Lindfield. The proposal aims to reduce the number of heavy vehicles travelling through Lindfield Village, encouraging them to use WSCCs Advisory Lorry Routes (essentially A roads) across the county instead.

In the light of the consultation, LPC will be taking forward discussions with stakeholders with a view to addressing concerns raised and hopefully moving the application forward. In the meantime, LPC would like to thank everyone who responded to the consultation.
