Call to ban town centre traffic in Henley

Would you welcome plans to create a piazza in Henley on Thames? Click here to take our poll.

HENLEY town centre should be pedestrianised during the day, says an environmental campaign group.

Henley in Transition wants to ban drivers from Duke Street, Market Place and part of Bell Street up to its junction with New Street.

It says this would improve air quality in Duke Street, which has the highest levels of nitrogen dioxide in South Oxfordshire.

The ban could be enforced with moveable barriers, which would be in place during office hours from Monday to Saturday and all day on Sundays and public holidays.

The barriers would open at night to allow deliveries but the speed limit would be reduced to 5mph.
