Street parking problems addressed in market town

THE problem of car parking in streets is being addressed in Princes and Monks Risborough.

A small subcommittee of Princes Risborough Town Councillors was formed in June this year to review the town’s parking areas.

They came up with known hot spots which was relayed to the Buckinghamshire County Council parking team.

Proposals are now being worked on to deliver solutions to the current problems.

These include determination of an existing budget within BCC, public consultations within the known areas, and then determination of proposals will again be put to public consultation.

The process is planned to be completed within a year.

The previous commenter is absolutely correct, the wardens, who used to be in town daily, now only come occasionally. Another big issue is that the wardens only patrol the yellow line areas and the police seem to ignore the rest. The result is that cars are parked dangerously close to junctions and opposite each other on narrow roads with impunity.
BCC were carrying out a "study" a year ago, but this is a euphemism for doing little or nothing, like the road repairs.
