Report investigating a weight restriction on the B676
When completing the village questionnaire for the parish council in March 2011, many of you asked us to press Leicestershire County Council to put a weight restriction on the B676 through Burton-on-the-Wolds.
The working party set up to look at issues arising from the questionnaire discussed this with County Councillor Richard Shepherd who took this up with officers at the County Council on our behalf.
This resulted in a report being compiled and unfortunately we have been told that a weight restriction is not possible.
Leicestershire County Council have implemented a part-night lighting scheme in the parish. Part-night lighting is where many of the street-lights have been turned off between 11.00 p.m. and 5:30am.
This is part of a Leicestershire County Council project to reduce street lighting levels in the County in order to make savings on energy costs, reduce carbon emissions and reduce light pollution.
