Future of Spaces for People measures

What happens now that people have given us their views

The consultation has now closed. Responses received will help inform any proposals to keep measures in place, either on a trial basis or more permanently.

We'll take an update on the main findings of the engagement to the Council’s Transport and Environment Committee in June 2021.

We're also continuing to review the temporary Spaces for People schemes we have in place and this information will inform the next steps.

Next steps

We'll take a further report to the Council’s Transport and Environment Committee on the schemes that we recommend should move forward. Councillors will then take decisions on whether to proceed with longer trial (experimental) or permanent schemes.

Once approved, we would then follow the legal Traffic Regulation Order process which includes a 21 day period from the date of publication to allow for comments and objections from residents, businesses and stakeholders.
