The Council approved a pedestrian crossing (not signalised) in front of Rise and Grind as part of the desired outcome of last year's Local Area Traffic Management Plan. However, this crossing will cause the loss of several car parks and there is increasing pressure for this crossing not to be constructed. If you have recently had a coffee at Rise and Grind you may have been asked to sign a petition to this effect. I encourage you do do so. If you would like the extra protection that such a crossing will provide then I encourage you to let me know?
