Results from a survey on the newly pedestrianised zone on Cotham Hill show overwhelming support for keeping the zone in place.
Residents were offered three options on the future of Cotham Hill. Option A and B proposed continuing with the road closure with slight variants, while option C would see Cotham Hill reopen but only for one-way traffic.
The clear winner was option A, with 63 per cent of people choosing it. Option B came in second with 27 per cent, meaning 90 per cent of people are in favour of keeping the road closure in place along with a series of other measures.
The council will look to take option A forward, which on top of keeping the road closure, includes retaining space for businesses to trade outside, widening a number of pavements, and making a series of one-way routes to reduce through traffic.
It also includes creating a school street outside SS Peter and Paul Primary School, which would close part of Aberdeen Road at drop-off and pick-up times, making it safer for children to walk, cycle and scoot to school.
Other measures, such as bollards, planters, blue badge parking, cycle lanes and cycle parking, would also form part of the proposals.
The temporary road closure will remain in place to through traffic between Whiteladies Gate and Hampton Lane, and between Hampton Park and Abbotsford Road on Cotham Hill.
A number of formal consultations on the proposed road closures will take place towards the end of 2022. In the meantime, the detailed designs for the scheme will be drawn up.
