Good luck with that if the agreement covers the CHEP plant (blue sign in middle of pic). These trucks come from all over Europe - the drivers follow their sat-navs and if that takes them through Nort Stifford, then that's where they'll go!

This is a joke. How on earth will they enforce this? The Council recently banned lorries parking along the Manorway but the Manorway still resembles a lorry park. The Council can't stop lorries using a road unless they impose a weight restriction.
