A pedestrian priority area in the village centre

The Parish Council have always felt that village centre should have a focus for new commercial and community uses. Policy 8 of the Neighbourhood Plan sets out the specifics of such a plan which will see a pedestrian area with traffic calming and enhanced car parking. What do you think?

Policy 8 – As part of the village centre re-development, the stretch of the High Street between Vineyard Close and Wareham Road will become a re-surfaced pedestrian priority area with traffic calming and a 10mph speed limit. There will be enhanced car parking within this zone. The redevelopment of residential properties facing onto this stretch of road for retail or commercial purposes will be supported, providing the new use does not adversely affect the residential amenity of nearby properties.
