West Melbury Man Wants 1,000 Signatures On His Shaftesbury High Street Petition

A West Melbury man has launched an online petition urging Dorset Council to reinstate Shaftesbury’s pedestrianisation as soon as possible.

Jonathan Wedge understands the difficulties faced by disabled residents during the 13 months of traffic restrictions. In his Alfred interview, Jonathan offers his solutions for access to the High Street for locals with impaired mobility.

Dorset Council has agreed to start work to assess the potential for pedestrianisation. But that evaluation and consultation could take 18 months and Jonathan says that is too slow. You can find Jonathan’s petition here.
