Chalvey res­i­dents have been asked to have their say on pro­pos­als for a res­i­dent park­ing scheme.

The coun­cil says from Septem­ber there will be ‘sig­nif­i­cantly in­creased traf­fic con­ges­tion’ and park­ing pres­sure in res­i­den­tial roads due to the com­ple­tion of the Grove Academy.

The new school will ex­pand to 1,900 stu­dents, plus teach­ers and sup­port staff within the next few years.

The coun­cil is propos­ing a res­i­dent park­ing scheme which would op­er­ate Mon­day to

A con­sul­ta­tion has been launched for a res­i­dent park­ing scheme in some Chalvey Roads. The coun­cil says the area will be un­der pres­sure from Septem­ber due to the com­ple­tion of Grove Academy.

ents wanted to park in the area dur­ing this time they would need a park­ing per­mit at the cost of £25 per year.

Park­ing re­stric­tions such as yel­low lines, park­ing bays and the per­mit scheme are pro­posed to con­trol park­ing in the res­i­den­tial ar­eas.

On the coun­cil web­site it states: “We un­der­stand there may be a num­ber of ad­di­tional fi­nan­cial pres­sures on your house­hold at this time. We are there­fore able to of­fer one free res­i­dent per­mit to each house­hold for the first two years the scheme is op­er­a­tional. This of­fer has only been made avail­able to res­i­dents in the vicin­ity of the Grove Academy School.”

One ad­di­tional per­mit can be pur­chased per house­hold, but only where kerb ca­pac­ity al­lows.

The coun­cil would like to hear from peo­ple who live in the fol­low­ing roads: Alexan­dra

Road, Bram­mas Close, Chalvey Road West, Church Street, Clive Court, Dam­son Grove, Green­watt Way, High Street Chalvey, High Street Slough, Lad­brooke Road, Spack­mans Way, The Green, Tur­ton Way and White Hart Road.

Res­i­dents and lo­cal busi­nesses are en­cour­aged to sub­mit their views. A sur­vey can be filled out on­line. Any ques­tions should be di­rected to park­ing@slough.gov.uk

The con­sul­ta­tion pe­riod will close on Fri­day, July 17.
