Hungerton – Saltby Road – Large HGV movements:
Many local cyclists use the road from Hungerton to Saltby to get out of Grantham. You may well be interested in this planning application currently with Melton Mowbray planning dept. Saltby Airfield – 21/01223/FUL. This is with regards movement of the large HGVS carrying straw for storage on to Saltby airfield.
Following local objections the proposal is now to have access to the site from Croxton Kerrial to Saltby but the exit will now be from the where the ‘club 10 turns’ towards Hungerton and onto Gorse Lane. Peak month is September when there could be 86 lorry movements a day.
If you think that you would not like to meet one of these lorries coming the other way on these narrow roads please make your comments on the planning website ASAP.
