During lockdown a number of people in Penarth started to engage more consistently on how the town could look and feel, in order to do better to support the quality of residents’ lives.
The creation of Penarth Living Streets gives concerned residents a voice in decisions that affect all users of the town. This could be in matters such as pedestrian priority, road danger reduction, pavement parking, and addressing the reasons for the widespread reliance on private motor vehicles.
We have already been successful in working with Masters students from Cardiff University to gather data with a specific focus on Windsor Road & Glebe Street and the route to Station Approach & Victoria Square. This data has been used in reports to summarise current mobility choices, accessibility, and the future vitality of Penarth high street.
