ANOTHER study will be carried out to decide whether to look at banning traffic from Colchester High Street.

Colchester Council’s policy and public initiatives panel will be asked to recommend commissioning a study looking at the options for reducing traffic in the town centre.

It comes 18 months after the panel requested a review of pedestrianisation.

The idea for pedestrianisation has been a subject of discussion for at least 35 years.

The controversial plans have gone to and fro for years.

In March 2013, an experimental pedestrianisation scheme was put in place, banning traffic between 11am and 6pm, although buses, taxis, motorbikes and pedal bikes were allowed access.

This was suspended a month later due to public concerns and reviewed again in October 2013.

So what do you think?

Last year when we asked you should Colchester High Street be pedestrianised 53 per cent said yes and 47 per cent said no. 

What do you think is the best option for the High Street?

Full pedestrianisation? Buses and taxis allowed? Or keep it as it is? Send us your suggestions.
