The city council is proposing including St Margaret’s Street into Canterbury’s pedestrianised zone.
It has begun a public consultation on the plan which would see the road pedestrianised as far as Watling Street.
The project would also see the surfacing and lighting in St Margaret’s Street upgraded to that recently carried out in Orange Street, The Friars and Best Lane.

It would also include installing a bollard in Hawks Lane to prevent vehicles getting into St Margaret’s Street.
The £188,000 work is being fully funded by developers, including £75,000 from the developers of the new hotel to be built on the old Slatters site in St Margaret’s Street.
Cllr Ben Fitter-Harding, the council’s property and regeneration chairman, said: “We’re very pleased to see the Slatters redevelopment project making progress.
“Improving the street outside the building and making the area easier for pedestrians to use are important parts of the overall scheme.
“The similar surfacing enhancements to other roads in the city centre have been well received and we hope this proposed work in St Margaret’s Street will go down just as well.
“Please give us your views in the consultation.”
Another proposal in the city centre pedestrianised area is preventing vehicles getting to St Peter’s Lane from St Peter’s Street. It also involves bollards and is also being consulted on at the moment.
