Could shared space soon be coming to Tunbridge Wells?

The borough council is pushing for the scheme - which sees pedestrians, cyclists and cars having equal priority.
It would see Mount Pleasant Road largely pedestrianised.
Road markings, traffic controls and pavements would also be removed, reports the BBC.
Councillor Paul Barrington-King said it could make the town "a bit more pedestrian-friendly".
But critics say it's dangerous for visually impaired people.
