Pedestrianisation of Braintree town centre

About the scheme

We have transformed Braintree town centre to create a safer, flexible, traffic-free and more attractive town centre space to encourage people to visit and use.

A wide shot of the town centre with buildings on the left and right hand side, people are also sat on chairs and walking down the street.

The pedestrian area restricts access for most of Braintree town centre from:

  • The top of the High Street (near entrance to Sandpit Lane)
  • Great Square
  • Market Place

Access is maintained at all times for emergency services, emergency utility works and refuse collection vehicles only.

There is also a restricted parking zone at Manor Street, Victoria Street and Fairfield Road. Visit our parking web page for details of the arrangements.
