The Council is reviewing some of the Liveable Streets schemes that have been implemented with a new survey. The aim is to end the traffic management schemes.
The aim of the review is to remove the elements of the existing Liveable Street schemes, which are:
- Restrictions to traffic movement
- Congestion on our main roads
- Limited emergency service access or compromised how vulnerable residents access their streets
However, the review aims to retain public realm improvements such as widened footpaths that make it easier for residents to get around.
As part of the review process, the council wants to hear residents’ views on all proposed plans. Where appropriate a consultation will be held on each individual scheme. This is to ensure that residents can have their voices heard before decisions are made and projects are implemented.
