Many traders are concerned about plans to pedestrianise a High Street in Northamptonshire permanently.
Daventry High Street is closed to traffic twice a week so regular markets can be held.
The rest of the time, it is a narrow one-way street with a small number of parking bays.
Some traders say it is essential that shoppers are able to park right outside stores - particularly customers who may have mobility problems or who wish to purchase large items.
But other traders have told BBC Radio Northampton that the move might attract shoppers because they would not have to dodge the traffic.
The aim is to make the High Street safer as shops start to open up again after the coronavirus lockdown and no decision will be made without a full consultation.
