Per­mits could spell an end to park­ing mis­ery

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A GROUP of neigh­bours plagued with park­ing is­sues could see an end to their con­cerns if a park­ing per­mit scheme is in­tro­duced.

An ex­per­i­men­tal traf­fic reg­u­la­tion or­der is be­ing de­vel­oped to in­tro­duce a park­ing scheme for neigh­bours in roads near Wex­ham Park Hos­pi­tal, after they com­plained about a lack of park­ing due to pa­tients tak­ing up spa­ces.

An il­le­gal car park op­po­site the hos­pi­tal was closed by the dis­trict coun­cil and park­ing prob­lems have wors­ened.

Denise Clark, of Grange­wood, near the hos­pi­tal, pre­vi­ously spoke to the Ad­ver­tiser about the is­sue. She said: “When South Bucks closed the field op­po­site the hos­pi­tal at huge ex­pense, they gave no thought as to where more than 200 peo­ple would park. We have Wex­ham Sec­ondary op­po­site and there is now nowhere for the par­ents to drop off and col­lect chil­dren, who are cross­ing a busy road that reg­u­larly has ac­ci­dents. It will not be long be­fore we have a fa­tal­ity.

“Grange­wood is now only one car width, so cars are hav­ing to mount the pave­ment to pass – this in­volves driv­ing over lawns in some cases.”

She added: “We are told we will get park­ing per­mits but have been wait­ing for 18 months now. Ap­par­ently it is in the pipe line but who knows what that means.”

TfB said it is still work­ing with county coun­cil­lor Trevor Egle­ton and the parish to de­velop and in­tro­duce this scheme.
