A range of temporary changes are being made across the county to provide more road space for people walking and cycling – keeping a safe social distance as they begin to go back to work and school after the Coronavirus lockdown. Further schemes are in development to support retail spaces which mean taking traffic and parking out of our town centres to create space. These plans are being developed with Hampshire’s district and borough councils, Business Improvement Districts, town and parish councils, and other organisations who have expressed an interest.
Petersfield – The Spine (Lavant, Chapel, The Square, High Street) – Reallocation of parking to give more space to pedestrians coupled with information signing along this area. It is also envisaged that new cycle stands will be introduced in Market Square, so cyclists have an area to park and secure their bicycles. A closure of Swan Street between High Street and Chapel Street to allow access only for buses.
Hampshire County Council supports safe shopping in Petersfield with COVID-19 social distancing scheme.
