MAKING Stratford town centre more pedestrian-friendly will help boost trade.
That is the view of Stratford-upon-Avon Town Transport Group which has drawn up plans for amending the current temporary traffic arrangements in the town.
They include banning cars, lorries and buses from Bridge Street, High Street, Sheep Street and Wood Street, except for emergency vehicles.
They also include limiting large delivery vehicle access to these streets to between 6pm and 11am.
The group says the scheme aims to provide more space for social distancing and would allow cafes, bars and restaurants to spill out onto the streets as encouraged by the new legislation.
They would also like to see the reversal of the temporary traffic flow in Chapel Street to northbound, to simplify access to properties along Chapel Street and Ely Street.
