New trial for Traffic Regulation Order set for Yeovil town centre roads
As a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, we have agreed with Somerset County Council to create a new trial for parking arrangements in Middle Street, Union Street and Peter Street in Yeovil.
What changes will there be?
As a result of feedback, the temporary flower troughs will be moved from the North side of Middle Street (M&S side) to the South side (WH Smiths side). This bay is longer so will mean additional designated blue badge bays becoming available in the area.
The designated blue badge holder bays created in Union Street will be retained for this trial period and an additional on street space created in Peter Street.
A weight limit of 7.5 tonnes is being applied to Middle Street and Union Street to support these changes.
When do changes commence from?
The changes officially come into force from 22nd February, but we have already now moved the troughs to prepare for the changes.
How long will it last?
This new trial will last six months and feedback can be sent via www.yeovilrefresh.co.uk/contact-us. The new trial period will give users of the town centre a further opportunity to share their views to help inform the next steps for this area.
Any other updates?
Oh yes – we are also exploring an expansion of designated blue badge bays in our Peter Street car park which will be the subject of a future report to our District Executive. This proposal will seek to maintain a balance of bays for the short term visitors to the town.
