PROPOSAL FOR TRAFFIC OFFICER REJECTED
Following proposals that a traffic officer be appointed to control the entry of vehicles into the pedestrianised area of the town centre, the scheme was rejected since the area was still designated as a main highway and such an officer would have no legal right of enforcement. Other proposals were being explored, including the use of bollards to be erected between 10am and 5pm.
