High Street & River Project

Last year the High Street and river Ponder team persuaded the Council to conduct a feasibility study of the future of the High Street (including the river area at the end of the High Street) Church Road and Station Road. Atkins and DSDHA (an urban design consultancy) were appointed to take forward this work and consulted with local businesses and residents. Atkins has now submitted their final report to the Council and we are waiting for it to be released to the Town Team. We are putting pressure on the Council to get the report to us as soon as possible as it has implications for traffic issues in the High Street which are particularly challenging at the moment and for safety issues on Station Road.
