Safer, Greener, Healthier Brentwood

Safer, Greener, Healthier Brentwood

Between 9am and 6pm, 7 days a week, a section of Brentwood High St will be closed to vehicles, except buses and cycles, for an interim period beginning on 4th July. This is to enable safer social distancing in the town centre. Essex County Council and Brentwood Borough Council have worked together after retailers suggested an interim closure to private vehicles, with just buses and cycling allowed, would bring a much-needed boost to the shops now they are free to reopen. The changes are paid for by Government as part of national work to re-open town centres safely.

Called ‘Safer, Greener, Healthier’, these schemes aim to provide bigger, safer spaces for city centre shoppers, residents, workers and visitors to maintain social distance. Measures will be constantly reviewed and altered if required.

Read more in the associated joint Press Release. (Following further consultation with local politicians and businesses, general traffic, taxis, private hire and delivery vehicles will now be allowed access to the High Street between 6pm and 9am daily)
