Denbighshire and Conwy Trading Standards are offering free caravan weighing and advice sessions.

Residents who are going on holiday in a touring or motor caravan can make sure they are not overloading their vehicle or caravan and putting themselves at risk.

The free caravan weighing and advice sessions are available for Denbighshire and Conwy residents, and for those in other local authority areas if they are able to travel to the location.

This is an advice session and no action will be taken if overloading or other issues are found, but we will work with you to reduce the load.

The free weight checks will take place at the Weighbridge on the A525 between Rhuddlan and St Asaph on the following dates and times:

Friday 01/04 – 9.30am – 2pm

Saturday 09/04 – 8am – 1pm

Friday 06/05 – 9.30am – 2pm

Saturday 21/05 – 8am to 1pm

Emlyn Jones, Denbighshire County Council’s Head of Planning, Public Protection and Countryside Services, said: “We are encouraging touring and motor caravan owners to take advantage of these free weighing and advice sessions being held by Denbighshire’s Trading Standards team in conjunction with colleagues from Conwy.

“It is important to make sure you are not overloading your vehicle or caravan, and therefore protecting yourself and others.”
