Yellow line proposal discussed
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).
