Hurstpierpoint is a narrow 18th century high street of varied carriageway width and narrow footpaths. The location suffered from unrestricted HGV servicing and conflicts with buses and other large vehicles, illegal parking and uncontrolled traffic movements.
Patrick Parsons’ Guildford office was appointed to investigate the pedestrian and traffic movements within the High Street, assess areas of conflict and road safety concerns and prepare a design scheme to address these issues.
The scheme was to be incorporated into a Public Consultation requiring the complex issues and design proposals to be clearly presented.
The feasibility study aimed to develop a scheme that improved pedestrian safety and street layout to create a more pleasant environment for pedestrians and shoppers.
