The Bailey Head, Bailey Head, Oswestry, SY11 1PZ


These changes are being proposed to improve regulation of traffic on Bailey Head and Arthur Street, whilst retaining appropriate provision for vehicles to drop off and pick up, market trading, and pedestrian amenity.

It is proposed that the Pedestrian Zone on Bailey Street, Albion Hill, and New Street will be retained as outlined in the previous consultation for the Bailey Head Area – Vehicular Access and Waiting Restrictions - which closed on 30th June 2020.

It is also proposed to install a physical barrier to prevent the movement of vehicles from Bailey Head to Bailey Street, which will improve pedestrian safety.

Please note: comments to amended proposals only.




Shropshire Council proposes to make the following changes to vehicular access and parking restrictions on various roads in Oswestry:

New Restrictions

Restricted Parking Zone with No Waiting At Any Time and No Loading 10am to 4pm

Arthur Street    From its junction with Bailey Head to a point 24 metres

(both sides)        west of Bailey Head

Bailey Head       Its whole length

(both sides)

Any existing parking or access restrictions at these locations will be revoked.

These proposals supersede those that we consulted on between March and June 2020, but only where they referred to the above lengths of roads.

If you wish to raise an objection, express support, or make any other comments about these proposals, please send an e-mail to  or write a letter to Traffic Engineering Team, Shirehall, Abbey Foregate, Shrewsbury SY2 6ND by 9 March 2021. You may also ring 0345 678 9006 for more information.

Please note that, for legal reasons, objections must be made in writing or by e-mail, and should state the grounds on which the objection is made. Objections cannot be accepted over the phone.
