Press Release from Buckinghamshire Council

22 July 2020
Charges for council car parking to resume on 1 August 2020


Buckinghamshire Council provided free parking during the COVID crisis. Now restrictions are being lifted, parking charges are being reintroduced. From Saturday 1 August, everyone parking in a council car park or in a parking bay on the road, will be required to pay the required charge. The exceptions are blue badge holders, who may continue to park in designated bays.

As high streets have reopened and residents are returning to use shops, restaurants, etc., the resumption of charging is necessary to help manage traffic flows and improve pedestrian safety.

A range of health and safety measures in our car parks has been put in place to help reduce the spread of coronavirus, including marking out social distancing areas around ticket machines, and advisory signage. There will be an enhanced cleaning regime for ticket machines, lift buttons and other surfaces in high footfall areas. Buckinghamshire Council has introduced the option for ticketless pay and display in more car parks across the county via RingGo; and payment of parking fees using this contactless option is recommended.

David Martin, Buckinghamshire Council Cabinet Member for Logistics, said:

“The reintroduction of parking charges is a necessary part of the effective traffic management of our town centres as traffic levels continue to build. However, for the next few days, council car parking remains free for everyone; and I would encourage residents to make use of this facility to support local businesses.”

In recent months, the reduction in numbers of vehicles on the roads has seen measurable improvements in air quality, particularly in urban areas. To support residents who want to continue to cycle, additional secure bicycle parking is being provided at many locations and railway stations. There are also plans to introduce cycle lanes, where this is feasible, to separate cyclists from other road users.

Response to Green Belt Preferred Options Consultation

summary this is what we said:-

“Beaconsfield Town Council believes that growth in the Town is essential in order that the community continues to prosper. Without growth it is likely that there will be decline as the existing population ages and the needs of the next generation continue to be ignored.

For the Town Council to support release of Green Belt land it must be demonstrated that exceptional circumstances exist. The development must not only address the key issues of infrastructure but also achieve the maximum amount of affordable housing. In this context the development must seek to include an appropriate volume of housing capped at a maximum of £350,000. .

Further development work will require a detailed framework masterplan, with infrastructure needs such as schools and medical facilities as well as roads and mains, with timing, phasing and so on. These needs should be assessed holistically on a town-wide basis to ensure any complementary enhancements required to the existing town are integrated. We therefore strongly recommend that at least three representatives from the local community including one from the Town Council work with landowners and developers as part of a multi-disciplinary group having responsibility to safeguard the interests of the existing population”.
