Bell Street Resident Livid Over Market Day Pedestrianisation Move

A Bell Street resident is unhappy that Shaftesbury Town Council has asked Dorset Council for permission to pedestrianize the High Street on market days, when the current COVID-19 road closure ends.

Alfred understands that town councillors were canvassed for their views on this measure and nine of the twelve members emailed in support of this action.

Christopher Price says this is ‘undemocratic’ and the town council should have discussed the Thursday road closure during the council debate on pedestrianisation last month.
