Thornbury High Street Survey

South Gloucestershire Council have introduced temporary changes to Thornbury High Street as part of changes designed help protect against coronavirus as lockdown restrictions are eased.

This includes closing the High Street up to Chapel Street, effectively pedestrianising the town centre, to allow people to keep a safe distance whilst shopping. This will mean that traffic entering the top of the High Street will be directed down Chapel Street.

The section of road between Chapel St and The Close will be for residents and blue badge holders to reduce cars turning in the area and make it safer for children exiting the playing fields.

Access for delivery vehicles through the High Street has been changed from two-way, to one way.

These changes in Thornbury will initially be implemented under a Temporary Road Closure and will later be followed up by an Experimental Traffic Order which could potentially run for 18 months before being made permanent. 

As the local MP, I am conducting this survey to find out what local residents and businesses think of this new scheme to help inform key decision makers:
