Zooming June + Agenda (updated)

At our previous Queens Park Community Zoom catchups people have talked about the need for changes to our street layout to support social distancing – especially in the St James Street area, with requests made to move bins and close parking spaces to give people more room to queue and to walk, and it look like this call has been taken up, with extensive work taking place outside Morrison’s and Boots as well as elsewhere in the city centre

What do you think of it? Is it too much, about right or is there more to be done? With many of our shops set to open next week, how will the extra pedestrian space affect trade?

The council is putting these changes in place using emergency money from the Government – the first stage is about putting measures in place quickly, and there is an opportunity for further funding to help make successful schemes permanent, so how well this works could have an impact on the city felt far beyond the current pandemic.

This will be among the topics discussed at our next Queens Park Community Zoom, which takes place on Wednesday June 17th 6.30pm. Other items will include a policing update and we hope that someone from the homeless and street community support services will be able to attend to update us on this area as well.
