Yatton High Street

Last updated: 19th May


The public consultation on a package of planned improvements for Yatton High Street closed on 9th May. We have now started to read through all the comments and submissions before agreeing a final scheme.

The aims of the package for Yatton are as follows:

  • improve safety and perceptions of safety for people walking, cycling and other forms of active travel between North End and Yatton village centre, including trips to and from school.
  • increase the proportion of journeys made by active, lower-carbon ways (such as walking, cycling and scooting) within Yatton, particularly from new developments at North End;
  • ensure the new developments at North End contribute to the improvement of the village as a safe, active and attractive place to live, work, learn and visit.

We are therefore proposing to:

  • introduce a 20mph speed limit to slow vehicle speeds and improve road safety
  • widen footways at narrow pinch points through the High Street
  • improve crossing points for pedestrians
  • provide a new access into the primary school through the Co-op car park (subject to agreement with landowners)
  • other minor alterations of signage, gullies and bus stops to facilitate the works
  • realign the Cherry Grove and Well Lane junctions with Stowey Road as part of the school pedestrian and cycle zone.
