Northallerton High Street will continue to be closed to traffic on market day up until at least the end of September 2021.
This is so social distancing measures can continue to be taken, as we all do our bit to ensure we emerge safely from the covid crisis.
We’ve received much positive feedback about the high street experience on market day since it’s been closed to traffic, with comments around it being a pleasant experience for shoppers with a relaxed vibe and a sense of space.
We are grateful to drivers doing their bit too, and using an alternative route on Wednesdays and Saturdays to allow this to happen.
The closure is being funded by the ERDF welcome back fund and is subject to review and we will let you know if it’s necessary to extend this arrangement beyond 30 September 2021.
