Sainsbury’s plan: Dunmow panel wants heavy lorries re-routed
A SPECIAL panel set up to look at ways of stopping large lorries driving through narrow village streets has delivered its conclusions.
Members of Dunmow Town Council started the working group at the start of the year after plans for a new Sainsbury’s store in Saffron Walden revealed that large delivery lorries will be routed through Great Dunmow, Great Easton and Thaxted.
The panel has met on a number of occasions and has also been in discussion with counterparts in the other two villages – all have decided to object to the plans in the strongest possible way.
A spokesman said: “Because of the short timescale we have had to quickly draw up a letter of objection and we will be keeping a close eye on the application.
“A joint letter from all the parishes involved has been submitted to the planning authority.”
