Parking and Traffic Calming
Parking can be an issue throughout the Parish. To report problem parking go to Report It.
Parking a vehicle on the pavement could lead to an offence of obstruction being committed. This could result in a fixed penalty notice being issued to offending vehicles. It can also cause danger/nuisance for pedestrians and wheelchairs users.To report such incidences to the police please call 101 or report online .
The Parish Council has been using MVAS (Moveable Vehicle Activated Signs) equipment to record volumes and speeds of traffic at suitable sites throughout the Parish. Analysis of this data has been shared with AVDC, Transport for Bucks and Thames Valley Police (TVP) in support of requests for further traffic calming measures throughout the Parish. The Parish Council are currently working with TVP to set up similar Sentinel speed monitoring points. Drivers caught speeding on Sentinel equipment can be identified and may be contacted by Thames Valley Police.
Ben Hamilton-Baillie was engaged by the Parish Council to draw up some proposals for traffic calming in Ivinghoe, Great Gap and Ford End. Please see further details at the BHB Project tab.
Movement of HGVs through the parish is likely to increase if Bedfordshire goes ahead with plans to introduce weight restrictions on neighbouring minor roads. The Parish Council are pressing Buckinghamshire to impose similar weight restrictions on the B488.
