Statement of Reasons

The proposal is to improve road safety by reducing the volume of traffic in streets which are narrow, are often without footways and which generate significant pedestrian flows, while allowing access to parking spaces for those who require it. It will improve the character and amenity of the local area and make the town centre more attractive for pedestrians, particularly the older and younger road users. It will reduce traffic congestion and potentially improve air quality and the character of the environment.
