A SCHEME to paint yel­low lines near a sec­ondary school has been given thou­sands of pounds from a county coun­cil grant.

Bucks county coun­cil­lor Ti­mothy Butcher says £6,525 from the Lo­cal Area Fo­rum (LAF) bud­get, which pro­vides fund­ing for com­mu­nity projects, will go to­wards putting yel­low lines near Chalfonts Com­mu­nity Col­lege in Chal­font St Peter.

A group of vil­lagers pe­ti­tioned to add the lines be­tween Nar­cot Lane and the en­trance to Tun­mers End near the col­lege.

Peo­ple in Nar­cot Lane hope the scheme will stop mo­torists us­ing the spa­ces all day hazardous con­di­tions.

Mr Butcher also hopes some of the bud­get can be put to­wards im­ple­ment­ing park­ing re­stric­tions in Croft Road, after neigh­bours spoke of their frus­tra­tions at a meet­ing on Wed­nes­day last week.

Fam­i­lies who live in the 24-home cul-de-sac are protest­ing against work­ers who park their cars in the street and leave them all day. They want some of the LAF money to be

used to in­tro­duce park­ing mea­sures of two daily one-hour slots from Mon­day to Fri­day when park­ing by non-res­i­dents is banned.

Bucks County coun­cil­lor for Chal­font St Peter, David Martin, backed the scheme at the LAF meet­ing in Seer Green.

John Wood, who lives in the road, told the meet­ing: “Cur­rently there is never any park­ing avail­able for res­i­dents or vis­i­tors. Our aim is not to stop lo­cal peo­ple us­ing it to park. We just want to stop lo­cal work­ers us­ing it as a car park.”

Trans­port for Bucks will visit the site to see if the work can be done.

The £6,525 is the last of this year’s LAF bud­get.

A new bud­get will be an­nounced next year.
