As you probably know by now, the Axbridge Action Group (sponsored by the Axbridge Community Partnership) is progressing with the Streets of Axbridge trial, which is a mix of physical changes in Axbridge Town Square, along with in-depth community engagement to find out how residents and visitors want to see Axbridge develop for the future in terms of the relationship between people and cars.
The project’s core aim is to get the balance right between vehicles & pedestrians, throughout Axbridge, to create a safe shared space for now and the future.
So far the parking spaces have been changed, there are now tables outside the Almshouse for everyone to use, and there are two new planters with trees in, in the Square. Not all the changes are in place yet, and there are some tweaks to be made, but soon the planters, benches, and new bike racks should all be in the right places, and the Trial will be properly underway.
Why not come and find out more on the 18th July – 10.00am – 2.00pm in Axbridge Town Hall. Have your say and see more details of this trial. We’d love to hear your thoughts.
Peter Harding, Chairman of Axbridge Action Group says: “Come along and have your say! This is a trial which is being conducted to get people talking and find out what residents and visitors want to see happen in Axbridge now and in the future”.
More information about the project can be found on this website, and we’re on Facebook too.
