Shoppers and businesses are being asked to have their say on temporary measures used in Haverhill to encourage people to back local traders while staying COVID safe.
Partners want to capture views while they are fresh in people’s minds to inform any relevant improvements for the town centre that may come forward in the future.
As from the 25 October 2021 the High Street and associated roads returned to their pre–Covid state. the pre-existing Traffic Regulations Order which sets out how the highway can legally be used will fall back into place. This includes restricted access in the High Street between 10am and 4pm except for Blue Badge and permit holders. There will also be restricted access for all traffic in Queen Street between 10am and 4pm. Camps Road adjacent to Pea’s Market Hill will return to two-way traffic. Civil Parking Enforcement officers will be enforcing this as per the previous regime.
A survey has been launched and partners are keen to understand the views of town centre users such as shoppers and local businesses on the temporary changes to the town centre, including a barrier enforcing the traffic rules. The views from the survey will be shared with all town centre partners. It can be found at Haverhill town centre temporary road closures (smartsurvey.co.uk) and will be live from 20 October to 5 December.
