Yel­low line pro­posal dis­cussed

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

NEIGH­BOURS of a sec­ondary school are call­ing for dou­ble yel­low lines out­side their homes to stop mo­torists park­ing there.

A group has pe­ti­tioned to get the lines painted be­tween Nar­cot Lane and the en­trance to Tun­mers End, near Chalfonts Com­mu­nity Col­lege in Chal­font St Peter.

Peo­ple in Nar­cot Lane hope the scheme will dis­cour­age mo­torists from us­ing the spa­ces all day and caus­ing a haz­ard.

Buck­ing­hamshire County Coun­cil has looked into the is­sue since it was brought up by the group at a com­mu­nity fund­ing meet­ing in May.

The coun­cil also iden­ti­fied park­ing is­sues di­rectly out­side the col­lege be­side the turn­ing cir­cle and on the verge near the pedes­trian cross­ing.

Prin­ci­pal Cather­ine Davies said: “Park­ing has been an is­sue around the school for a num­ber of years and we are work­ing closely with the au­thor­i­ties to support yel­low lines in key ar­eas. We send reg­u­lar re­minders to par­ents when pick­ing up and drop­ping off stu­dents and most follow safety ex­pec­ta­tions and act re­spon­si­bly.

“No one is

be­ing de­lib­er­ately dif­fi­cult but at least we are work­ing to­wards a pos­i­tive so­lu­tion with our long-suf­fer­ing res­i­dents.”

The Chalfonts neigh­bour­hood po­lice team has worked with the col­lege to en­cour­age safer and more con­sid­er­ate park­ing, at­tend­ing sixth form as­sem­blies to ad­dress the is­sues.

Coun­cil­lors were due to dis­cuss whether the pro­pos­als can be funded at a county coun­cil meet­ing yes­ter­day (Wed­nes­day).
