Clifton East RPS review

We’re proposing some changes to the Clifton East RPS following our review of the scheme.

The Clifton East RPS review (pdf, 228k) (opens new window) includes a summary of the issues that we’ve considered and our new proposals.

You can let us know what you think about the proposed changes later this year, when we’ll advertise a new Traffic Regulation Order for the scheme.
