A GUIDE to the High Street car ban has been published following a barrage of complaints - even before the scheme is launched.

The FAQ, published on the Colchester Council wesbite, also revealed the scheme will run for 18 months, six months longer than previously expected.

It was drawn up after council leader, Anne Turrell, received a flurry of responses from residents, traders and other parties with fears about experimental ban.

She has urged people to wait and see how it works in practice before criticising the scheme.
