Public consultation: Andover Town improvements - Newbury Street to Chantry Street
The public consultation on proposals to improve accessibility and the environment in Andover town centre started on 10 October 2013 and ended on 11 November 2013. Outcomes and next steps will be published here in early 2014.
The proposals cover the area from Newbury Street through to Chantry Street, including the upper part of the High Street that is open to traffic. See details and plans below.
The proposals are to:
improve the footways and road surfacing throughout the area
formalise crossing opportunities for pedestrians who access the town for work, shopping or to St Mary’s Church
slightly raise the road level to encourage traffic to travel more slowly through the streets
discourage unnecessary through traffic
make the area more attractive for all its users whilst maintaining provision for delivery vehicles and access to business and residential premises
The project is being proposed jointly by Hampshire County Council and Test Valley Borough Council.
It is funded by
financial contributions from building developers secured through the Town Access Plan
a government grant from the Local Sustainable Transport Fund

results of the consultation will be published on this page in early 2014
