A joint statement from Suffolk County Council and Babergh District Council


Published on 17 June 2020.

“Suffolk County Council and Babergh District Council are working together to create safer places that will support businesses as they reopen in the district. Temporary emergency measures are being implemented that are under constant review and we will work with parish and town councils to refine them as required in local areas.

“The situation regarding the temporary emergency traffic management in High Street, Lavenham has been reviewed and is being adjusted to suit local conditions. As such the barriers will be removed, while the ‘no waiting’ cones will remain in place. The team will begin to remove the barriers as soon as possible and this is expected to be completed today (Wednesday 17 June).

“Suffolk County Council has received and successfully implemented several requests for safer places, allowing pedestrians and cyclists to travel more freely, whilst adhering to Government’s social distancing guidelines.”
