Traffic through the village continues to be a major community issue. The size, speed and sheer number of vehicles gives us all serious concern for safety, as well as causing delays and disruption.
In some cases homes and property are being damaged by trucks that are too large for our small village roads, originally designed for horses and carts.

Lorry movements in Monxton:
The Parish Council have received more emails from villagers advising that Nelsons lorries have started coming the village again this week after a relatively quiet Christmas period (2015/6).
Can all villagers please make a note of the lorries coming through the village, including the following information if possible.
1. Date and time.
2. Direction of travel – i.e. towards Andover or towards Grateley.
3. Empty of full and if possible type of material.
4. Registration details, even partial.
If villagers do feel that there is information that may assist the Environment Agency then we would request that they email the name of any alleged offenders, and the name of any alleged site or venue where illegal activity may be taking place. The request for specific information as you have detailed will still be relevant, i.e. time, date, registration etc. In reporting information individuals can choose to remain anonymous. The information will then be passed to the EA.
The Environment Agency understands the concerns of Monxton villagers, but their first priority must be the safety of those individuals.
As part of our campaign to combat the problem we need to build a base of evidence about vehicle movements, especially large lorries & trucks. And, if they do cause damage or commit a traffic infringement, catch them in the act!
Pictures of any commercial vehicles submitted by parishioners will be published on this page. Villagers can add their own comments to the pictures, allowing us to build a picture of their direction of travel and likely destination.
Note: Trucks for the Co-Op Distribution Centre that are mis-routed through Monxton are subject to a £500 fine per incident. It is important that we reconcile the number of vehicles that are caught on TVBC’s cameras with the number that we spot entering the village.
You can submit your reports – including pictures or videos – to the the special traffic email address firstname.lastname@example.org
