Worcester’s High Street is traffic-free

We reckon it’s a safe bet that, before Worcester’s High Street was pedestrianised, it was full of traffic.  Yet, bizarrely, that’s a reason given for not banning traffic from Camberley’s High Street.

Of course, we’re not proposing a total ban on traffic in our High Street.  But people and traffic don’t mix, so when there are lots of pedestrians about, vehicles shouldn’t be allowed.

What puzzles us is that there’s no real need to do anything to our High Street if the intention is to let Camberley evolve into a backwater shopping parade.  But the council’s aspiration is still – as far as we know – for the town to achieve ‘Top 100’ status.  Which won’t happen while the High Street doubles as a car park.  Muddled thinking, we feel.
