Final Parking Consultation

Bucks County Council are launching the final consultation on the proposed parking changes for Chesham on Friday 10th March. The following changes are proposed:

Introduction of sections of double yellow lines at junctions and to provide passing places on Ashley Green Road, Alma Road, Bellingdon Road, Chessmount Rise, Higham Road, Hill Farm Road, Latimer Road, Nutkins Way, Pheasant Rise, Springfield Road, Sunnyside Road, Upper Gladstone Road, Upper Meadow, Waterside, Webb Close, Wesley Hill. The proposed "no waiting at any time" restrictions are necessary to reinforce the Highway Code rules where motorists must not park. The restrictions will introduce double yellow line junction protection and passing areas and improve visibility for the safe passage of vehicles and pedestrians. 

Introduction of "no waiting Monday to Saturday 8am-6pm" on Alexander Street, Berkhampstead Road, Cameron Road, Chartridge Lane, Chilton Road, Church Street, Essex Road, Fullers Close, Fullers Hill, Park Road, Severalls Avenue, Sunnyside Road, Waterside. These restrictions are necessary for preserving or improving the passage of vehicles and amenity of the area. 

Introduction of permit holder parking Monday to Friday 8am-6pm on Albert Road, Franchise Street, Gladstone Road, Queens Road, Stanley Avenue, Upper Gladstone Road, Victoria Road, Germain Street, Higham Road, Sunnyside Road, Townsend Road, Treachers Close, Wesley Hill, Webb Close, Upper Meadow, Lindo Close. The permit scheme is intended to prioritise parking for the local community and remove all-day commuter parking from predominantly residential areas. 

Extend the existing taxi stands in High Street and The Broadway. This is intended to improve the local amenity and allow an alternative choice for pedestrians not wishing to drive. 

You can view the maps of the affected areas and more information on the proposals on the County Council web site and you can also provide your comments to them. The consultation will close on the 31st March 2017 and this is the final opportunity for you to have your say.
