MP and residents 'delighted' by successful campaign to restrict HGV access in Oakenshaw
Ms Leadbeater met with residents and saw for herself the problems arising from HGV access to Wyke Lane.
She expressed these concerns to Kirklees Council and Highways England.
HGV restrictions have now been put in place by the relevant authorities and are fully in operation.
Ms Leadbeater said this was a “great success for campaigners and residents who have worked hard to protect the character and integrity of the village of Oakenshaw”.
She called the measure “essential for the safety of residents, and a responsible change to highways planning”.
She has now written to constituents along Wyke Lane and affected streets nearby, thanking those residents who campaigned on the issue.
