Enforcement of weight limit on Braydon Avenue

Ahead of the planned full closure of Gipsy Patch Lane from early March, Trading Standards and the police will be undertaking two joint operations a week, checking that vehicles are not breaching the weight limit on Braydon Avenue, Little Stoke.

These operations will be targeted at times and places when/where intelligence suggests infringements are most likely to take place. Initially the police will issue Fixed Penalty Notices, but there will be an option for a Trading Standards prosecution if the circumstances warrant it.

Trading Standards are happy to receive intelligence on potential breaches, but to make this manageable reports need to be emailed to trading.standards@southglos.gov.uk detailing days, times, location and any branding / identification marks on the vehicles. These reports will help to inform future enforcement operations.
