To not remove the pedestrianisation in force on Bath Street, Ilkeston. Instead, to look into measures to help promote the businesses on the high street. Suggestions such as more free parking around Bath Street, and promoting the introduction of new shops.
Bath Street is by most standards a fairly good high street. The pedestrianised part of it is slightly better than the national average for closed shops (whilst the bottom part that allows cars has significantly more closed shops). Instead of destroying what we have by allowing traffic to disrupt shoppers, we need to focus on improving things more to get a fully thriving high street.
