Views are being sought on proposals by Hertfordshire County Council to improve the look, layout and safety of the area around Clarendon Road in Watford. 

Feedback is welcome from residents and businesses on the proposed scheme, which includes: signal-controlled pedestrian crossings, a new cycleway heading north along Clarendon Road, wider footpaths, tree and hedgerow planting and feature lighting.

Terry Douris, cabinet member for Highways, said: "We’d like to hear what people think of our proposals. Our aim is to improve safety and facilities for pedestrians and improve the look of the area. 

"Please take the time to fill in one of our feedback forms so we can take your views into account before finalising the scheme." 

Residents and businesses in the local area will receive feedback forms in the post. The consultation closes on Wednesday, August 13.

There will be a wider public consultation at a later date. 

All feedback received will be collated and used to help us develop a preferred option for the scheme.

Firstly, this is the smallest part of Clarendon Road near the High Street, not what most people think of as Clarendon Road which is the long, business lined road leading to the Junction.
Secondly, why do the council insist on spending money on reviews and surveys and plans? ARUP must be laughing all the way to the bank!
Thirdly, is this all some subtle thing to do with the new "market"?

So we're adding 'feature lighting' here but still keeping 'safety lighting' off after midnight in side roads?

And there will be more cycle paths that narrow roads and lead to no-where, and wider pavements, also narrowing the roads and probably causing single-file traffic with no turning points....thus removing any hope of drop-off points for the theatre of course. This mistake was made at Watford Junction and I see it happening again here.
