Plans to make Kettering more pedestrian friendly will be discussed by Kettering Council’s executive tonight (Wednesday, February 18).

Kettering Council’s executive is discussing putting in four more sets of rising bollards as part of a wider scheme to redesign the town centre.

They are also looking to ban cyclists from the town centre as part of a new Traffic Regulation Order.

The new Traffic Regulation Order would see rising bollards installed in Gold Street, High Street, Lower Street and Meadow Road, alongside a collapsible bollard in Meeting Lane.

The bollards will not prevent delivery vehicles, but these will be restricted to arrivals between 5pm and 9am on Sunday to Thursday and between 5pm and 8am on Friday and Saturday.

The new Traffic Regulation Order will also limit loading vehicles to 20mph and create blue badge parking areas in Meadow Road, Lower Street and Gold Street.
