Abnormal Loads

If you wish to travel through Dorset with an abnormal load you must first notify and obtain authorisation from Dorset Police. To submit your application, please contact the Abnormal Loads Department.

The Abnormal Loads Department can be contacted via telephone on 01305 or 01202 226329, by fax on 01305 226335 or you can email: Abloads@dorset.pnn.police.uk

All notifications received by the Abnormal Loads sections WILL be either given a letter of authority, or, be refused and the reason why given by facsimile.  If applicants do not receive either the Authorisation or a refusal prior to movement, this means the application has not been received by the Abnormal Loads department.

Drivers and Escort vehicles need to carry a copy of the authorisation. Failure to do so may result in the driver being reported under construction and use offences.
