Councillors help put stop to early morning lorries thundering through Stoke Bardolph after complaints from residents


Two councillors have put a stop to early morning lorries shaking awake residents in Stoke Bardolph.

Cllrs Sam Smith and Mike Adams received complaints from residents – including one NHS frontline worker – who were being woken by the noise of lorries thundering through the village at 4.40am each morning.

The lorries had been parked up at Stoke Farm in the centre of the village overnight.

Villagers said the incident had been going on for around two months.

The complaints were raised with the Trent Valley councillors for Gedling Borough Council who said they have now resolved the issue.

Councillors Smith and Adams told Gedling Eye: “Alongside many other residents, we were contacted by a nurse who is working on the frontline to beat Coronavirus. She and her family were being woken up every morning by these lorries for the past two months.

“They all contacted us last week and we wrote to both Severn Trent and Wrights of Twycross and agreed with them that they would be parked elsewhere to prevent our residents from being disturbed.

“We thank both Severn Trent and Wrights of Twycross for their quick response and action and encourage Trent Valley residents to contact us with any queries that we can assist with.”
