working in partnership with Flintshire County Council and the Holywell Business
Towards the end of the trial period, a community poll will be held to formally
consult with residents, businesses and users to evaluate their views on the
Holywell Town Council passed a resolution to trial the opening of the High
Street and to hold the community poll at a later stage and the local county
councillors fully support Holywell Town Council, Flintshire County Council and
the business community in undertaking this process.
The trial period starts on 8 May and will be closely monitored to ensure the
safety of road and footway users, including a review of the effectiveness of
the scheme and its impact on local businesses and the wider community.
Enforcement measures will be implemented from the start of the trial with the
Council requesting that everyone uses the street in the appropriate manner
whilst respecting the traffic control measures and regulations.
If the trial period proves to be a success, and after having given due
consideration to the views of residents, funding will be sought by the
partnership group to take the necessary steps for a permanent scheme to be
implemented in the future, subject to a successful grant and funding
