We’re making some temporary changes to make Raglan safe for our communities to return and support our local shops and businesses. A fantastic marketing strategy has already started.

For now, only minor works are proposed, as agreed with the Community Council. An enlarged pavement area will be created to facilitate social distancing at the east-bound bus stop on Monmouth Road.

We will monitor other narrow areas to review if future pavement enlargements are needed at Extons and the Pharmacy, but no changes are proposed in these locations at this time.

A 20mph zone is being introduced covering the whole of Raglan village (except the A40 and Usk Road by-pass) to create a safer environment for pedestrians and cyclists.

All of the changes are part of a trial. We will be seeking live feedback and we will tweak, add to, change or remove measures as appropriate. We will learn quickly and adapt as we go to improve based on feedback. If some of the changes are successful, we will consider making them permanent, following future consultation.
