Yellow lines to go near school
Move will halt workers parking all day
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.
