“The Council has carried out a number of meaningful consultations on the CPZ, and these proposals have received strong support.
“Parking spaces will be designated for the use of local residents and those businesses with a permit. In addition, pay and display spaces will also be provided for the use of visitors and to help our local shops and businesses to continue to flourish.”
The scheme is being implemented by way of Experimental Traffic Order, reviewable after six months.
