Devon County Highways are consulting on proposed changes and pedestrianisation for Sidmouth town centre as a result of working with Sidmouth Town Council during the Covid pandemic to provide more distancing.
Sidmouth Town Council asked Devon County Highways to look at a more permanent scheme to continue “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.”
The consultation runs until 2nd July and here is the link to the official pages to respond.
