Parking on St. Mary's Street
We are encouraging people to use the parking bays in St. Mary’s Street only to make deliveries to local businesses or if they are a resident of the street. The normal parking restrictions apply.
There will be no impact on bin collections for residents in St. Mary’s Street. Residents can put bins out and they will be collected as normal.
Businesses will have their own contractual arrangements for waste collection and are encouraged to get in touch with the service they use to make them aware of the road closure and discuss any impact.
Access to the indoor market
People can access the indoor market from the southern end of St. Mary’s Street (the nightclub end).
To make deliveries, they will need to travel against the usual flow of the one-way street and exit the same way in which they entered. Very large vehicles may need to reverse down St. Mary’s Street to get access.
No other traffic will be able to flow through from the other side of the exclusion zone.
Traffic signs are now in place to support this. We are aware that this is a very tight junction and we are carefully monitoring the situation before taking any further steps.
Deliveries to businesses in St. Mary's Street
If it is possible, we are encouraging people to make use of the loading bays on High Street – outside St. Nicholas Church and the Wrekin Housing Group building – and then walk deliveries through.
People can also access St. Mary's Street from the southern end as described above.
Compensation for any loss of trade
We understand that businesses will be worried about the possible impact on trade.
If your business is impacted by the exclusion zone, we would encourage you to check your continuity of business insurance and seek independent legal advice as it may be possible to claim compensation from the hotel owner.
