Managing traffic in historic towns is an issue which has been close to the heart of the Forum and its members for a number of years. Back in 1994 the Forum worked in partnership with The Civic Trust to publish documents which highlighted the impact signs and lines were having on our historic environments. The Forum's Historic Core Zones Report was born in the mid 1990s with the backing of the Department for Transport, English Heritage and The Civic Trust. The projects in Bury St Edmunds, Halifax, Lincoln and Shrewsbury have demonstrated that our heritage and traffic can live side by side and the Historic Core Zones Project published in 1999 illustrates this.
The four projects have now had a chance to stand the test of time and we can reflect on the successes and failures of the initiative and draw some conclusions. This review report is the result of close working between the Forum and the Department for Transport and is a follow up to the 1999 Project Report. The four examples provide a pallet of measures which we believe can be applied to all historic towns where such issues arise. It demonstrates that there is another way!
