Hitch in plans to boost Friday market

Tuesday, 22nd September 2009.

MARKET traders in Haverhill will have to wait to see whether plans to boost the Friday market by moving part of it into High Street will go ahead.

Traders had been hoping the move, which has been talked about in one form or another ever since the street was first pedestrianised, would help expand the market and make it stronger.

But Haverhill Area Working Party has found that initial consultation over the idea have thrown up various concerns, including disabled access and disturbance to residents.

The plan put forward was to use the section of High Street from the Quakers Lane junction to the Arts Centre, and traffic, other than emergency vehicles, would be banned from there between 6am and 6pm.

From 6am to 10am delivery vehicles and market traders would be allowed access by means of a removable barrier.

Traffic between High Street and Market Hill would be maintained and its exit would be via Quakers Lane and the town hall car park.

The working party will now see if it can address the issues which have been raised through the consultation.

I work in the high street (Gurteens) and have to have access in and out throughout the day. I am happy to exit the high street via quakers lane but the last time a used that road I wrecked the catalytic convertor on my car :-( The road needs A LOT of work to make it useable!! Am I right in thinking they must be removing the bollards at the bottom of the town hall car park then?
