Plans to end park­ing prob­lems speeded up

Have your say as coun­cil’s pro­pos­als go out for pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

Bucks County Coun­cil has been work­ing with Che­sham Town Coun­cil to draw up draft pro­pos­als for pos­si­ble changes to park­ing ar­range­ments within the town.

The pro­pos­als have been de­vel­oped in an at­tempt to ad­dress res­i­dents’ con­cerns over the cur­rent park­ing needs.

Pro­pos­als in­clude res­i­dent park­ing per­mits in some roads, changes to some wait­ing re­stric­tions in res­i­den­tial roads to re­move Satur­days and bank hol­i­days in some and to re­duce the hours of re­stric­tions in oth­ers.

Bucks County Coun­cil’s for­mal con­sul­ta­tion on the changes are now un­der way and res­i­dents in af­fected roads have re­ceived let­ters with de­tails of the pro­pos­als and a chance to com­ment.

The park­ing re­view was drawn up fol­low­ing Che­sham Town Coun­cil’s six-week con­sul­ta­tion last year, which asked res­i­dents to com­ment on the dif­fi­cul­ties they ex­pe­ri­ence when park­ing in the town cen­tre and neigh­bour­ing roads and what they think could im­prove the sit­u­a­tion.

The con­sul­ta­tion looked at so­lu­tions such as: Lim­ited wait­ing zones More dou­ble yel­low lines

Day­time re­stric­tions

Res­i­dents’ per­mits

Shared use park­ing – a bay which can be used by a per­mit holder or pay and dis­play ticket holder

The con­sul­ta­tion is run­ning un­til Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 30 and the coun­cil is urg­ing ev­ery­one to take part.

Che­sham’s mayor Pe­ter Hud­son said: “Feed­back from res­i­dents and busi­nesses is vi­tally im­por­tant so the best so­lu­tions can be cho­sen to try to im­prove park­ing ar­range­ments for all and I would urge read­ers to


park­ing re­sponse to be­fore the Oc­to­ber 30.

“There are no easy an­swers to park­ing, but the re­cently elected new town coun­cil un­der­stands the im­por­tance of the is­sue and will con­tinue to pri­ori­tise it and work with Bucks County Coun­cil to find ways for­ward.”

The pro­posed changes can be found on­line at haveyoursay.

The pro­pos­als can also be viewed in Che­sham Li­brary and at the Town Hall of­fice, where you will also be able to find a pa­per copy of the con­sul­ta­tion ques­tion­naire. the sur­vey dead­line of
