Hadleigh - Change Is On The Horizon

castlepoint-hadleigh-square

With Hadleigh now being known as the 2012 Olympic Mountain Biking Venue, it is clear to see that Hadleigh is on the way to some very exiting changes. With further improvements to local shops and businesses, Hadleigh is sure to become more than just a pretty little town in Essex. With the progression of the new Morrisons – including a doubly large car park – it is understandable that residents are worried about the impact of traffic that this may have on what was once a quiet market town.

Due to the many concerns that have been raised, Essex county council are working with engineers to develop a scheme which will see two-way traffic flowing on the south side of town, whilst the northern side will be transformed into a much safer and friendly place for pedestrians. Additional on-street parking and wider pavements will increase the comfort and ease of everyday shoppers too, whilst also benefiting the shops and businesses nearby.

With substantial changes to Hadleigh roads being proposed, a new square has also been suggested in order to help develop the heart of Hadleigh town centre. The square will ensure enhanced safety for shoppers, whilst allowing additional space to walk and be seating, if desired. Plans to utilise this area for market stalls, seasonal events and a bandstand will provide extra attractions for all to enjoy – both local residents and visitors.

So, are you for or against Hadleigh’s new proposal? Let us know your thoughts…
