In the past, it was agreed to pedestrianise Cresswell Lane with deliveries to businesses restricted to mornings. This arrangement is being suggested for Ashton Lane, Burgh Lane and Vinicombe Street to improve pedestrian safety and encourage visitors to the area.
Cresswell Lane is pedestrianised.
Ashton Lane is still open to traffic
and pedestrianisation is being proposed.
The historic lanes are unique architectural features of the West End. A visit to the shops and businesses in these lanes is a special part of any visit to the area. By pedestrianisation of these specific areas, it will be possible to create more seating and less traffic concerns.
