(Proposed scheme image – actual materials will be available to view at the exhibitions)
Your Town Council and Wiltshire Council have been working on plans for the centre of Bradford on Avon. We know many of you feel intimidated by the traffic, so we have worked with local people and traffic consultants to design a scheme called the Historic Core Zone.
It is clearly identifiable zone covering the town centre, making it clear to drivers that pedestrians have equal rights. It includes wider pavements and twenty-fice crossing points, many on raised sections and defined by bollards. it represents a substatial improvement to the public space, and is a calmer, safer, more attractive environment for everyone.
To decide whether the scheme can go ahead, Wiltshire Council has called for a Parish Poll. YOU decide!
The Historic Core Zone will be rolled out in phases. The zones will cover Market Street, Church Street, Silver Street and St Margaret’s Street and will be deliver in stages. The design and funding is in place for phase 1 at this stage.
