Motorists could be banned from using Ryde High Street, under proposals to fully pedestrianise it.

Currently, people are allowed to drive up the partially pedestrianised section, between 6pm and 8am from Monday to Saturday, and all day on Sundays.

That will no longer be the case, if the plans go ahead.

If given the green light, driving on the High Street at any time will be prohibited, except for access to off-street premises and Mill Lane.

Loading will be allowed between 6am and 10am only.

A ‘No Waiting At Any Time’ parking restriction will also be introduced on the High Street, from its junction with Garfield Road to its junction with Star Street.

The same will be imposed on Anglesea Street, which runs between Costa and Kids & Co.

Exemptions will be given to vehicles associated with markets held within Town Square on market days.

A consultation, launched by the Isle of Wight Council and Island Roads, is underway.

Anyone wishing to object can do so, in writing, to Antony Cooke, Highways PFI Contract Programme Manager St Christopher House, 42 Daish Way, Newport, Isle of Wight, PO30 5XJ, or to [email protected] You have until 12pm on Friday 12 March.
