Public amenity and health & safety fail
Reported via mobile in the Obstruction on road or pavement category by James Carrick at 14:17, Thu 7 December 2023
Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 5292885.
Please, PLEASE, pedestrianise this 200m strip of High Street for the benefit of all residents and visitors who regularly it on foot. During street redevelopment and covid it was closed to vehicles, yet businesses and mobility/accessibility needs were clearly achieved (as works went ahead). This is therefore possible if the council take action for the benefit of the majority. There are plenty of examples in UK and beyond of pedestrianised streets adding significant public amenity benefit - Carnaby Street - London, Clifton - Bristol, Hove - W Sussex, and Scandinavian countries. There is a huge opportunity to do something better with our Hign Street (not Temple Street heritage project - another waste of money and misdirected intent).
Thank you for your report, it will be reviewed by the appropriate team.
