Council votes on reopening high street

A council will vote this week on whether to reopen Chepstow high street to traffic after more than two years of closure.

The road has been closed to traffic since June 2020, when Monmouthshire County Council decided to shut it to enable social distancing and support outdoor trading during the early days of Covid.

The South Wales Argus reports the council consulted the people of Chepstow in spring this year about whether the road should be re-opened to traffic and clear majority expressed their preference for the high street to be re-opened to traffic – some saying that the continued closure was “killing the town”.

On Wednesday (27 July) the council’s cabinet will vote on the recommendation to support the view of the clear majority who responded to the consultation.
