Traffic in St Dunstan's Street.
The traffic trial has forced chef Patrick Williams out of business.
“My weekend trade completely evaporated during the trial. I’ve already been forced to lay off my one member of staff. It’s just unfeasible to continue."
He added: “The city council doesn’t seem to understand the value of the Goods Shed. It supports the local economy and helps to sustain local suppliers.
“I’ve been to many council meetings, and there’s no debate – just agreement. It was astonishing that the leader continued the scheme despite the huge petition launched against it and the results of the council’s own consultation.”
After his kitchen shuts next month, Mr Williams plans to move to London, where he will continue cooking, while devoting more time to music and writing.
A consultation about four options for the future of the road layout in Canterbury – one of which involves re-instating the trial as a permanent scheme – is due to start on Monday.
