The design for this area aims to enhance the residential feel of the street and make it safer and more attractive for people to walk and cycle to the school and local amenities, and create more quality spaces for people to use and spend time in.
Key proposals include:
To enhance the residential feel of the street and make the environment safer and more attractive for people accessing the school, nursery and local amenities, the design seeks to re-organise space for vehicle parking along Union Street and Academy Street.
Across both streets, parking peaks at different times throughout the day.
The initial designs have been developed to ensure there is enough space provided for residents, nursery drop offs, patients and, where possible, those who work close by. However, to provide more pavement width (especially outside the school), the initial designs would provide less space for vehicle parking along Union Street and Academy Street.
Those doing short trips (for example, the school run and meal trips), will be encouraged to use the proposed Park and Stride in the under-utilised Academy Street car park.
