Limited waiting on Cowick Street
Devon’s plans to remove the current limited waiting bay on the out-bound side of Cowick Street has annoyed residents, businesses and shoppers.
Cllr Hannah Packham met with traders before the consultation. “I hope I assured them that we, as Labour councillors, also fear what these proposals would mean for Cowick Street. Removing the bay would affect their trade and would mean traffic would have a free run to speed along this stretch of a very busy road..
“Devon say that safety concerns are one reason for their plans – but their own data shows that this isn’t the case”
The Labour team have ensured that the matter will be discussed at the next Traffic Orders meeting on 19 April 2016.
