Current and planned consultations


Why do we want your views?

To improve safety, active travel and air quality, and in response to Covid-19 pandemic, the Council intends to restrict motorised access in and out of the identified roads that accommodate school pedestrian gates during the morning school opening and afternoon school closing periods under an Experimental Traffic Management Order (ETMO). During these periods, the road will be predominately ‘pedestrian and cycle only’ zone. Residents who live in the affected roads will be allowed access as will staff who are based at the school; those with special needs children who need to be driven to school would also be exempt.

The restrictions and the Order will be in place for a maximum of 18 months. Anyone can object and make representations within the first six months of the experimental Order coming into force and the implementation of the works.

In response to coronavirus and to support our local businesses the Council intend to create a temporary
pedestrian & Cycle zone on the Village High Street. This will create a better environment for the local community and visitors, with more space for pedestrians to enjoy the village.

Following feedback received to the initial scheme, the Council has made a reduction to the restrictions. The restriction will apply on Sundays 9am - 4pm from Sunday 4 October 2020, This applies to vehicular access and parking.

The project will be implemented via an Experimental Traffic Order, which means we will seek and assess views on the scheme after it is implemented. We will monitor the effectiveness and impact of the scheme between now and January 2021. Dependant on feedback, a decision will be made early 2021 to either keep, modify or remove the experimental measures.
