Nov 052018

IGas advised us this afternoon that three HGV’s had left the site this morning (5th November 2018) outside of the permitted hours during term time of the Primary School of St Mary and St Martin on Retford Road Blyth. The restrictions apply during term time and are between 07:30 to 09:00 and 15:00 to 16:30 hours, Monday to Friday except in cases of emergency. The breaches were apparently self reported to the Enforcement Officer at Nottinghamshire County Council (NCC) by the IGas Communications Manager. It seems that there had been some confusion on site over when half term finished.

The NCC Enforcement Officer then raised an issue during communications with IGas today about reports that the wheel wash was not being used and that the miscreant HGV’s (as above) were reported as abnormal loads. IGas position on the use of the wheel wash is that planning conditions do not state that the wheel wash should always be used, rather that the highway should be free of mud, which is what IGas believe they are achieving. IGas stated that the vehicles that left site this morning were undoubtedly in breach but were in fact standard HGV’s.
