The Neighbourhood Plan defines a number of projects for improving the experience of people in the town centre. In particular, it promotes the concept of pedestrian priority by:
1) closing High Street to traffic during the day, so it functions as a pedestrian plaza. This would be similar to the scheme already implemented successfully in Henley Street;
2) reducing the amount of parking space in Bridge street, widening the pavements, and improving facilities for buses and taxis.
