Consultation - Chapel Street

Spondon Neigbourhood Board want to hear your views on permanently preventing motor vehicles entering Chapel Street from the mini roundabout. The proposals would:

  • reduce vehicle conflicts at the junction
  • enable the footway to be widened, improving the situation for mobility scooter users and those with pushchairs
  • enable the residents of Oxford Street and Gladstone Street to leave in either direction
  • cut down on the traffic sign requirements leaving more space on the footways for pedestrians.

It is proposed to introduce a 'No Entry' point (except cycles) at the mini roundabout, preventing access to motorists to Chapel Street between the Chapel Side precinct and Sitwell Street at the roundabout.

For further information please view Chapel Street Consultation document.

Please complete the consultation form to give your views on the proposals.
