The Council and its staff would like residents to be assured that we are working hard behind the scenes to find ways, in line with Government policy, of creating a town centre environment that feels safe to all potential users.

The closure of the western end of the Market Place has been welcomed and enjoyed by many and we are liaising with those who have raised concerns.

Following discussion with various interested parties, detailed plans for a larger closure have been drawn up  and submitted. Further discussions are ongoing and the Council will let you know as soon as they can what the next steps will be. Please keep checking the Council website for updates.

We take this opportunity to give a huge thank you to all our residents who are doing their best to keep each other safe in these challenging times
