The much-discussed Spaces for People measures are being removed from Stockbridge in mid-November.
The decision was made in June by the Transport and Environment Committee after considering a report which stated the following with regards to temporary measures in shopping streets, saying;
"The assessment of the SfP measures concluded that, despite achieving some benefits for pedestrians, most of the temporary infrastructure should be removed.
This is for the following principal reasons:
- There is limited ongoing benefit to the street environment, with the temporary infrastructure having a degree of negative impact;
- There are neutral or sometime negative impacts on public transport;
- There have been some negative impacts on parking and servicing for both businesses and residents."
