BWA has responded to the consultation on making permanent changes to the use of road space in Cotham Hill. This follows the temporary introduction of two traffic-free areas near the Whiteladies Road end of Cotham Hill to increase space for pedestrians and business use during the Covid-19 pandemic.
In our response, we support retaining the trial closures of Cotham Hill to motor vehicles. Our comments mainly relate to the details of how a permanent scheme can most effectively be implemented. We encourage poor usage of the space to be designed out whenever possible.
