Roads and Highways
Safer, Greener, Healthier routes in Brentwood town centre - interim High Street closure to vehicles, except buses and cycles from 4 July 2020.
Essex County Council and Brentwood Borough Council have been working together to make the town centre safer for people during the COVID-19 crisis. Called ‘Safer, Greener, Healthier’, the scheme aims to help social distancing by providing larger, safer spaces in key locations for town centre shoppers, residents, workers and visitors.
Brentwood High Street will be closed to vehicles, except for buses and cycles from 4 July.
