A £500,000 scheme to make parts of Clevedon more accessible for pedestrians and cyclists has been changed following suggested improvements by residents and businesses.
In March residents, businesses and visitors were encouraged to have their say on proposed changes to The Beach and Hill Road.
The proposals for public realm improvements include:
- Pavement widening and better crossing facilities
- More seating and planters
- Cycle lanes and cycle parking
- One-way roads on key streets
- 20mph speed limits
- Additional car parking.
Over 1,000 responses were received during the six-week consultation period and North Somerset Council has made a number of changes to the scheme as a result.
The changes include:
- Providing more car parking then before for the area as a whole
- Reducing the speed of cyclists and ensuring pedestrian safety
- Providing new dedicated loading facilities for businesses to prevent delivery vehicles blocking pavements
- Ensuring access to driveways
- Providing plants and trees at suitable locations.
Work on installing the improvements in due to start in January and expected to take 12 weeks to complete.
