The bridge design has been opposed by many residents
Stratford-upon-Avon residents have rejected plans to build a £2m bridge across the Avon next to the Royal Shakespeare Company.
The arch bridge for pedestrians and cyclists has met with continued local opposition despite being approved by the county council.
A district council poll found 3,173 people against the plans and 441 in favour, with a turnout of 18.1%.
A clear majority wanted Lucy's Mill Bridge upgraded or a new bridge nearby.
In 2006, 56% of townspeople who responded to a questionnaire said they did not want the new bridge.
The results of the poll will now be sent to Warwickshire County Council for consideration.
