Covid 19 emergency

Melbourne Parish Council has been informed by DCC that a temporary one-way scheme is to be put in place in  our village as part of measures to allow safe social distancing due to the Covid pandemic. As has been discussed at public events in the past, there are many reasons why Melbourne's street layout is a challenge, and whilst a permanent one-way system would address some issues, it would create others. This emergency scheme will allow Melbourne residents and visitors to assess the impact of a one-way system, and Melbourne Parish Council will consider all feedback received before deciding whether to press for either retention or removal in the future.
