At Saffron Walden Town Council we are pleased to launch phase two of the Town Centre Road Closure consultation.

The successful first phase of consultation has helped us formulate the following options and we are now asking which is preferred for the future use of the Market Square:

Option 1:  Roads closed to traffic, complete pedestrianisation of Market Square.

Option 2:  Roads partially open/closed – this would involve retention of the pedestrian area of Market Square but re-opening of King Street / part of Market Street to traffic and blue-badge parking.

Option 3:  Reopening of all streets to traffic (i.e., no road closures at any time, other than the existing Market closures).

Options 1 and 2 do offer variables which need considering; whether closing the roads is all year round, limited to certain seasons, times or days. The opportunity to choose your preferred option is available within the questionnaire.

To share your views please complete our questionnaire, which can be found HERE   ( saffronwaldentowncentre.commonplace.is  )

and social media channels. Alternatively, paper copies are available from the Tourist Information Centre.

We will host two consultation days on The Market, before and after Christmas, on Tuesday 21st December 2021 and Tuesday 18th January 2022.

The consultation will be open for seven weeks closing on 24th January 2022.
