Phase 1 may have an affect on businesses as loading arrangements will change due to the road being closed to traffic. The loading/unloading along Mepham Street will need to be completed at the junction with Waterloo Road. The remaining two phases will not impact the loading arrangements, with minimal wider impacts
Working Hours will be from 08:00 to 18:00 - Monday to Friday & 08:00 – 15:00 on Saturday.
