8.Kent suffers from major issues because of HGV’s parking in unsuitable locations. This causes distress to residents and results in environmental waste in many locations. While Kent County Council are pursuing a number of small heavy good’s vehicle (HGV) overnight parks in Kent it is clear that encouraging lorries to use the parks will be key in finding a permanent solution. KCC working with the Department for Transport (DfT) has designed a zonal scheme that could be expanded to other areas or a countywide scheme. Without increased overnight lorry parking capacity a wider scheme cannot be instigated. By introducing a pilot scheme the implications of such controls will be determined.A pilot scheme which involves clamping on the first offence has been in operation on the A20 between Charing and the Drovers roundabout since 30th October 2017. The clamping trial is also in effect for the existing industrial estates that have overnight lorry parking bans in Ashford. This report summarises the first four weeks of the trial.
