The petition reads:
“WE the residents and councillors of Chafford Hundred object to the proposal to remove the weight limit from Devonshire Road.
The weight limit has only been in place for 2 years and it was put in place to protect residents lives and properties.
We think the proposal is a waste of tax payers money as a full consultation about this was undertaken 2 years ago before the weight limit was installed.
The Council has not explained the rationale behind this new consultation so soon after the previous one. The Council is yet to produce any police stats or traffic delay figures to evidence the reason for the new consultation.
It therefore leads to one conclusion, that the aim is politically driven and we strongly object to tax payers money being wasted for political gain.
We object to the proposal and to the absolute waste of tax payers money.
