This consultation may be of interest to SDN members who need to use disabled parking spaces-Church Street, Oswestry.

The experimental prohibition of waiting and loading restrictions, together with the provision of additional disabled parking and loading bays, will further trial a revised parking layout which is intended to enhance provision for disabled parking in Oswestry town centre. It will also provide improved dedicated loading facilities, whilst managing traffic and indiscriminate parking.

The above aims to provide improved safety for all road users, as well as an enhanced quality of life and environment for the local community, and will be applied on an experimental basis for up to 18 months.

One-way street restrictions and a 20mph speed limit are also proposed for this area, and are covered by separate traffic regulation orders.
