Parking restrictions at Bucks beauty spots

A new temporary '24-hour rural clearway' restriction is being put in place at some visitor attractions around the county.

It will effect the places that are fed by narrow access roads with the aim of keeping them clear of parked cars for the safety of emergency vehicles, key workers and essential deliveries.

The relaxation of on street parking and free parking in council car parks is also continuing, this includes parking on single yellow lines, in limited waiting areas and in pay-and-display bays.

You're being encouraged to make use of the free car parks to again keep the roads clear, but you're also being reminded to expect a warning if you overstay in a limited time parking bay.

Patrols recorded have seen parking increases around some beauty spots to as high as 70% of pre-lockdown levels. 

David Martin, Buckinghamshire Council Cabinet Member for Logistics said:

"During these difficult times most drivers have been parking considerately, but as more and more people get out and about in their cars, we want to control the risk of dangerous and inconsiderate parking, so that the way is clear for our emergency services to get through, and to keep traffic flowing."

If your heading out to enjoy more of what Buckinghamshire has to offer the roads affected by the rules include Rowley Lane, Black Park Road, Fulmer Common Road, Billet Lane and Bellswood Lane, in the Iver area; Denham Court Lane, Denham; Court Lane and Marsh Lane, near Dorney Reach; and Brickhill Road, Heath & Reach.

David added:

"With more cars on the road now, we need to make sure we are considerate with our parking," he said. Parking patrols, he added, would continue to deal with improper parking, obstruction, parking on double yellow lines, and persistent congestion in residential areas.

For safety reasons disabled parking bays, pedestrian clearways and double yellow line restrictions remain unchanged.
