Social distancing

The Parade has been pedestrianised for the first three weeks of the easing of the lockdown to encourage people to start using the shops whilst being able to keep social distance. It's good not having cars around and having all this space for walking about.

There was a consultation on the permanent pedestrianisation of the Parade a few years ago but there was too much opposition so the plans were abandoned.

Let's hope that this experiment leads to cars being permanently banned from this main street - not only will be more pedestrian-friendly but it also decrease pollution from cars.
