Rhondda Cynon Taf Council is welcoming residents’ views on proposed changes to Tonypandy Town Centre.
During March, the Council announced it would consider options to open the pedestrianised area of Tonypandy Town Centre to traffic. The potential change would introduce a 20mph zone for vehicles in a northerly direction only, with loading and waiting bays to assist shoppers.
The plans were welcomed by local traders in August, when the Council held an engagement event where more than 20 attending businesses were given a first insight into the proposal.
The Council will now further consult with the wider community in a three-week period from Tuesday, October 31. At the bottom of this page, there are two links – one to a page providing further details about the proposals, and one to an online survey where residents can express their views about the plans.
There will also be a public exhibition on Tuesday, November 7, at Hope Church in Dunraven Street, Tonypandy, from 11am to 7pm. Residents will be able to view the plans in detail, and Council officers will be on hand to answer any queries. Forms will be available for residents to leave any comments.
The proposed changes to Tonypandy town centre represent another significant investment through the Council’s wider £200m #RCTinvest programme, delivering improvements in priority areas such as Leisure, Schools, Play Areas, Highways, Housing, and Town and Village Centres.
Any further comments about the plans must be given at the public meeting on November 7, or by letter posted to Traffic Services Manager, Sardis House, Pontypridd, CF37 1DU, by November 21.
