New consultation about high street on the horizon

Wednesday, 30th March 2011.

Another consultation exercise is heading Haverhill's way after the elections in early May - this time about environmental enhancements to High Street.

There is 750,000 available to carry out works to an area between the Market Square and Quakers Lane, including paving in line with the rest of the street.

The traffic order to pedestrianise the street has run into objections which will require a public inquiry later this year and the results of that will be included in the scheme.

A report to Haverhill Area Working Party says: "There are a number of issues relating to the current layout of High Street and management of traffic in this area and a long-held desire to introduce full pedestrianisation to the street during the main part of the day."

It goes on: "In view of the widespread public concern about the way the High Street currently functions, it is considered appropriate to carry out a series of consultation meetings, with local stakeholders and the public, to establish their concerns before any detailed design work is undertaken."

It is suggested that the public engagement begins immediately after the elections. Dates for public consultation events and meetings with stakeholders will be arranged, where possible to coincide within existing meeting dates.

The public consultations will consist of informal drop-in sessions where the public will be invited to highlight the particular issues of
concern to them.
