Safer, Greener, Healthier Epping Forest

Safer, Greener, Healthier Epping Forest

Epping High Street and a section of Station Road will be given a 20mph speed limit and parking bays will be altered to become pedestrian areas, for a period to enable safer social distancing in the town centre.

Essex County Council and Epping Forest District Council have worked together after it was suggested that an interim pedestrianisation, with cycling allowed, would bring a much-needed boost to the stores now they are free to reopen. Work to install the new measures is planned to start on Tuesday 30 June. 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. Some disabled bays and loading bays will be retained and notices advertising the changes will be put up in the High Street.
