Durham County Council have launched a Street Space County Durham consultation.
The consultation runs until 31st July and you can access it through the link above and through the DCC website.
Help us to identify locations in your neighbourhood that you feel need to have additional space provided temporarily to protect public health, by supporting social distancing in public spaces.
We want to encourage people to travel on foot and by bike during the coronavirus restrictions and into recovery. The government has made funding available as part of its emergency response to COVID-19. To enable us to apply for these funding opportunities, we need to know where measures are required.
Temporary emergency measures using barriers, fencing or bollards could be used to:
- create pop-up cycle lanes
- reduce through traffic on certain roads
- reallocate road space to create wider pavements
- introducing 20 mph streets
- adding extra cycle parking
- remove street ‘furniture’ like pedestrian guard rails that are no longer required.
The consultation is specifically focused on emergency measures to address social distancing for people on foot and on bikes. Please do not add long-term aspirational projects as these are not relevant for this consultation.
This online consultation uses Commonplace, an external the website.
Please share with your friends, family, neighbours, colleagues, groups and clubs. We want to reach as many people as we can!
