Historic Core Zone consultation – must see video
This is about Shared Space scheme now up and running in a small Cheshire village called Poynton. 26,000 vehicles, including very heavy lorries, pass through every day on a main road and cross a busy junction; there is no by-pass. In BoA 20,00 vehicles cross the bridge daily.
The video shows the junction as it used to be and as it now is. It provides a balanced view of things and it’s clear that the residents of the village had the same level of sceptcisim as some people in BoA currently have about the Historic Core Zone proposals, although the HCZ is not a Shared Space scheme, because there are kerbs and differences in levels between road and pavement; however, the principles do apply.
