I am a great advocate of  pedestrianising the precinct area as at present it is an eyesore, and with an introduction of a monthly market (?) and an area for outside seating it surely will encourage people to shop, eat and drink.

There's no disputing the fact that the precinct is an eyesore (no disrespect to those who live and work there - it is just as unappealing as many other 1960s precincts in many other lovely villages throughout the country, having been built without regard to aesthetics) and it would be a relief to see it demolished and the residents and commercial outlets given better premises. However, that's never going to happen.

Even part pedestrianisation would be a welcome development, as the congestion caused by traffic entering and leaving, so close to the entrance to the village, is alarming. Holding a weekly, or even monthly market there would be fantastic. CSP has had a charter therefore permission for a market since the 1200s - not sure when we lost the weekly market,but it would be fantastic to see it return. Maybe Church Lane car park might be made free of charge on market days, and local businesses, as well as market stalls, would benefit from the increase in shoppers it would attract.
