Changes to parking restrictions could be on the cards for Buckingham after the launch of a public consultation today, Friday.
Bucks County Council is asking the people of Buckingham to have their say on plans to reduce waiting times and extend or introduce double yellow lines on some of the town’s streets and parking areas.
It comes following a review of the existing parking arrangements in Buckingham and consultation with county councillors, Buckingham Town Council and Aylesbury Vale District Council.
The review has been funded by money from the Buckingham Local Area Forum. The consultation ends on August 26.
The aim of the changes is to address ongoing safety concerns, make parking easier and create a greater turnover of parking.
Among the changes being consulted on are:
> Castle Street: reduce the hours of the existing limited waiting bays from 8am-6pm to 9am-5pm and introduce double yellow lines between existing limited waiting bays;
> Cornwalls Meadow: reduce the hours and maximum stay of the existing limited waiting bay from 8am-6pm to 9am-5pm and from 1 hour, no return in 1 hour to 30 mins, no return in 1 hour;
> High Street: provide a new disabled bay near Masonic House Surgery and extend double yellow lines at the junction with Moreton Road;
> Market Hill: replace existing loading bay with limited waiting bay with the hours Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, 9am-5pm, 30 mins no return within one hour and no waiting Tuesday and Saturday, 1am-6pm. Reduce the hours and maximum stay of existing limited waiting bays from Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 8am-6pm, one hour, no return within one hour and no waiting Tuesday and Saturday, 1am-6pm to Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 9am-5pm, 30 mins no return within one hour and no waiting Tuesday and Saturday 1am-6pm.
