Views sought on permanent closure of Shore Road

Swanage Town Council has launched a consultation to find out if residents support the possible permanent closure of the south end of Shore Road. This is the section between the Mowlem and the junction with Victoria Avenue.

The online survey asks: “Are you concerned about safety along the south end of Shore Road?” It then goes on to ask, among other questions, whether permanent closure would be beneficial or detrimental?

Safer environment for pedestrians

This stretch of road runs along the seafront, in front of the beach huts and is closed between 1st May until 30th September each year, to create a safer environment for pedestrians during the summer. It’s long been a subject of local debate whether this period should be extended to cover the busy Easter holiday period, or indeed, closed all year round.

The survey can be completed online or paper copies will be distributed to residents with the next Swanage Town Council newsletter. Paper copies need to be returned to the Town Hall or Swanage Information Centre and all submissions need to be completed by Friday 20th March 2020.
