Appeal for More Photo/Video Evidence of HGVs Causing Problems

The campaign to get Oxfordshire County Council to apply for 7.5T weight restriction for Henley is appealing to residents to take photos or videos of large HGVs causing problems in Henley to back their proposal.

Amanda Chumas, a resident in Bell Street who has been leading the campaign said, “I want to encourage residents and visitors to use their smart phones to take photographs when they see HGVs behaving badly in Henley. I would also like to ask for details of time, the road/ location and date. By doing so they should understand that they are giving permission for the campaign to forward these photos  on the relevant executive officer at Oxfordshire County Council in order to build evidence of our case “on an almost real-time basis.”

The photos and emails should be sent to

Amanda added, “I gather that in 2021 OCC officers are intending to review in two stages the Local Transport Connectivity Plan 2015-2031 in which paragraph 17 specifically highlights the particular problems that HGVs cause in Henley, Burford and Chipping Norton  (the latter two already having had their problems addressed). So I am hoping that photographic evidence submitted on a regular basis will drive home why we need protection as well.”
