A range of emergency cycling and walking measures to aid social distancing and improve access to local businesses, schools and shops across the borough, will be discussed at Councillor Ken Hawkins’ decision making session tomorrow, 6pm, 28 May.
The report looks at a number of temporary measures that could be taken to support a phased approach to kickstart economic recovery in line with Government policy.
Councillor Ken Hawkins, Cabinet Member for Environment & Highways, said:
“I look forward to an informed discussion tomorrow as I consider some temporary emergency measures. These proposals are driven by the need for social distancing as well as a way for us to improve cycling and walking provision in the borough.
“I can reassure everyone that any schemes discussed on Thursday will be subject to consultation with those communities and businesses affected before being implemented.
“Acknowledging concerns already expressed from stakeholders in and around Knowle, I’m asking officers to work up further proposals for Knowle High Street. I want them to involve businesses, residents and other stakeholders to ensure we can safely open Knowle High Street, in line with government guidance on social distancing, in the coming weeks, whilst also looking at how we might support extra measures with regards to cycling.”
