Alcester High Street – Covid 19 Recovery Plan

Alcester Town Council is pleased to announce plans for supporting the re-opening of the High Street in the weeks ahead as lockdown measures continue to ease.

As from Monday 13 July there will be a temporary one-way pedestrian system in the High Street which will comply with social distancing rules whilst helping direct safe shopping and movement in key locations. This plan is designed specifically for Alcester and creates the minimum of change possible. In particular, there are no changes to traffic or parking arrangements.

Thank you to everyone who has responded to the first High Street Recovery Survey.  The results are here:
