TODAY is the last chance to have your say on Penarth town centre plans in a survey put forward by the town council.

Penarth Town Council launched a post-covid survey to establish what traders and shoppers wanted to see happen in the town centre - and it closes at midnight tonight.

The controversial proposals put forward by Penarth Town Council to pedestrianise part of the town centre and implement a one-way traffic system have divided opinion.

Penarth Town Council has stressed the ideas are "points for discussion" before a formal proposal is put to the Vale Council. They also said a trial period will not take place in August and September.

Ideas include a pedestrianised “safe space” on Windsor Road from Arcot Street to the roundabout, including the bottom of Lower Glebe Street.

Other plans for Windsor Road could include “shared spaces” between pedestrians and traffic during set times, while another included only allowing service traffic – such as delivery vehicles – to access Windsor Road and Lower Glebe Street.

One of the major points for discussion is around proposals for a one-way traffic system incorporating Albert Road, Stanwell Road, Hickman Road, Arcot Street, Glebe Street and Ludlow Lane.

The town council say the one-way system would enable more chevron parking on Plassey Street, Albert Road and Stanwell Road.

But traders think the town will suffer if pedestrianisation plans go ahead.
