7.5t weight limit in Highgate

We met with Haringey's Officers to seek an explanation for the proposal. We pointed out various signage discrepancies and unacceptable knock-on effects and were promised a revised plan which Haringey would have discussed with Camden. They did however stress that the date for comments could not be extended. On the consultation closing day we received a plan with two revisions which were not material and so we objected to the scheme as it stands. We were then offered two alternatives via Cllr Morris :
 
   Option 1:  Accept the existing scheme and then work on a revised scheme to address the anomalies and knock-on effects subject to funding, or
   Option 2 : Not accept the existing scheme and instead work up a revised scheme with a view to the Officers putting in a funding request for 2017/18
 
We have opted for Option 2.. As will be seen from the paper we came to the conclusion during our deliberations that a 7.5t weight limit must be introduced across all roads in Highgate in both Haringey and Camden with the exception of the A1. The 'old' 5t limit is apparently unforceable because the police find it difficult to differentiate between 5t and 7.5t vehicles.
