SHOPPERS and businesses have only a few days left to have their say on the future of Braintree High Street.

A council survey asking whether proposals which would see the pedestrianising Braintree High Street is a good idea ends on Monday, October 15, at 5pm.

The consultation is asking residents how they feel about stopping vehicles from using High Street in a bid to revitalise the town centre.

The council says if most back a pedestrian zone it will begin work on plans for shop deliveries, bus stops and access for emergency service vehicles.

It is understood up to £5 million could be invested in the plans which would include Market Place and most of High Street up to St Michael's Lane.

Residents can have their say by completing the poll at or by visiting Braintree Town Hall or Causeway House in the town centre.
