Following previous consultation and feedback from the local community, BCP Council is now presenting a range of alternative options to improve the trial Victoria Park Road low traffic neighbourhood scheme. It now wants both residents and businesses to share their views on the proposed options before any changes are implemented.
The trial scheme at Victoria Park Road was introduced last year, with the aim of creating a quieter, safer, and more pleasant environment for local people to walk and cycle.
From today (Monday 9 August), the new consultation will run for approximately six-weeks. During this time, residents are encouraged to carefully consider the proposed options online before completing a survey. Once this consultation is completed, a decision will then be made to either remove or implement the options under a new trial. Residents will then be given further opportunities to share their views before a final decision is made to retain, amend, or remove the trial.
Councillor Mike Greene, Portfolio Holder for Transport and Sustainability at BCP Council said:
“We have carefully considered the results of the previous consultation and with the support of local ward councillors, we’re now proposing a range of options which we think have the potential to improve the trial at Victoria Park Road and create a better environment for all those traveling in the area. We now want everyone to share their thoughts on which options they prefer before any further decision are made.’’
