Traffic, especially HGVs should not be encouraged onto small & narrow roads like these & the cost of a replacement, wider bridge I should imagine would be prohibitive? And keep this part of the Stour Valley and AONB pristine for generations to come!
Absolutely horrific. These Councils are nothing but wanton ECO VANDALS hell-bent on destroying everything that is good and beautiful and historic, pure evil. We must not allow them to destroy our areas of outstanding beauty and heritage, we must all oppose these arrogant Civic bureaucratic bandits.
We have a similar issue locally to me with an old bridge in a woodland nature reserve, so I'm concerned that these cases should be considered in co-operation with local residents whose views should be taken very seriously.
