improving access and connections

Getting parking and accessibility right is key for the success of our town. We will work closely with the local authority and private car park owners to develop and implement initiatives that meet the needs of people who visit, work and live in town.

Ideas in development

Our initial consultation with businesses and key stakeholders has enabled us to explore the following ideas:

  • To raise awareness and improve signage of the long stay (all day) car park in Park Avenue, with the key messages being 'cheap', 'easy walking distance' to town.
  • To introduce seasonal parking offers including free parking in December on certain days / times
  • To run a free shuttle bus
  • To improve and introduce new signage within town
  • To introduce digital signage at key areas across the town promoting businesses, attractions and amenities
  • To ensure the new Mill Street development links up with the town centre by introducing clear signage
