Pedestrianisation of Braintree town centre

The designs

The scheme has seen a new pedestrianised area to the High Street, Great Square, Bank Street and Market Place with new solid paving, a single level surface and all regular traffic removed (with some key exceptions).

We have used feedback we received from local businesses and residents to help develop the designs.

Additional features:

  • 11 new silver birch trees
  • 15 new litter bins have been installed
  • Several new seating areas with more being installed in the future
  • A series of wayfinding monoliths to celebrate town’s history and help visitors navigate the town centre  
  • A permanent access gate at Bank Street and permanent bollard at the bottom of the High Street
  • Additional electricity points to power a greater range of market stalls
  • New lighting in Market Place

CCTV that covers the town centre are being reviewed to assess performance and age. All faulty ones will be replaced.
