The Projects Committee is working on various proposals for the enhancement of The Cut. Funds have been reserved for several years from the budget to pay for this project.
Planning permission has been granted to relocate the loading bay (outside Day Lewis, Chemists) to the other end of The Cut (ie: outside the toilet block) and install block paving on the pedestrianised portion of the road. New seating and planting is also part of the overall plan.
The project cannot proceed until a solution to the raising/lowering of the bollards throughout Cowes High Street has been resolved between the Isle of Wight Council, the Cowes Business Association and the Safer Neighbourhood Team (Police).
