I encourage residents, and the local community in particular, to please attend the open day and collaborate with us,' said the City's Deputy Mayor and Mayoral Committee Member for Spatial Planning and Environment, Alderman Eddie Andrews. </p><p><strong>The open day will be hosted as follows:</strong></p><ul><li>On Saturday, 24 February 2024 from 11:00 to 15:00, at the Lydia Centre for Memory on the corner of St Phillips and Chapel Streets, District Six</li></ul><p><strong>Submit comments:</strong></p><ul><li>Online at <a href="" target="_blank"></a></li><li>Email: <a href="" target="_blank"></a> and use the reference 'Chapel Street Upgrade' in the subject line</li><li>The closing date for comments is 7 March 2024 </li></ul><p>'The draft detailed design also focuses on creating a pedestrian centred environment along Chapel Street. This includes interventions to make the road safer for pedestrians with traffic calming measures, narrowing the road itself, and widening the sidewalks. This is in addition to the planting of trees to lure people outside where they can interact with visitors and each other, and their neighbourhood,' said Alderman Andrews.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>End</strong></p><p><br></p>2024-02-15T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891dGP0|#40a3fc81-398b-4b43-9ae5-09062453094e;L0|#040a3fc81-398b-4b43-9ae5-09062453094e|planning;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GP0|#df7359f0-0d0f-46e0-b90f-d487358df9bb;L0|#0df7359f0-0d0f-46e0-b90f-d487358df9bb|district six10
