I responded to your query a couple of weeks ago. I'll repost it here.
In addition I am also liaising with a group of residents who are making a note of the arrival times of the lorries in the morning to see if this is in violation of the planning conditions.

> I’ve looked into the London Lorry Control Scheme

> The LLCS controls the movement of heavy goods
> vehicles over 18 tonnes maximum gross weight, at
> night and at weekends on specific roads on
> London’s road network. The scheme has been in
> place since 1985 under the Greater London
> (Restriction of Goods Vehicles) Traffic Order 1985
> and is enforced utilising the London Local
> Authorities and Transport for London Act 2003. The
> scheme is in place to help minimise noise
> pollution in residential areas during unsociable
> hours through restricted use of these roads.
> The above link is to the mapping and information
> for this; in summary:
> The map shows a Yellow shaded area: London-wide
> night-time and weekend Lorry Controls area (all
> roads outside this area have NO night-time and
> weekend controls)
> Roads which are exempt:
> · motorway with junction number
> · primary road
> · ‘A’ road
> · ‘B’/ other road
> To the best of my knowledge Chesterfield Grove is
> within the control area.
> Lordship Lane and East Dulwich Road as A roads are
> So this means that any lorries on Chesterfield
> Grove which weigh more than 18 tonnes are already
> in violation of the scheme. It may be that the
> lorries are lighter than this, in which case they
> would not fall foul of the LLCS.
> It is possible to put in local restrictions on
> lighter vehicles. However this would mean that
> residents on Chesterfield Groce would not be able
> to receive deliveries from a lorry (online
> shopping etc) which I suspect would be fairly
> I hope that this is helpful
> Best wishes
