Summary:

The Council is consulting on the proposal to introduce to introduce a permanent traffic regulation Order the effect of which will be to:-

  1. To extend the existing no waiting at any time restrictions on the south side of Little Linford from the shared boundary line of house numbers 64 and 66 to a point 10 metres west of the of the M1 bridge;
  2. To introduce no waiting at any time restrictions on the north side of Little Linford from the shared boundary line of house numbers 64 and 66 to a point 10 metres west of the of the M1 bridge;
  3. To introduce no waiting at any time restrictions at the junction of Pennycress Way and Little Linford Lane; 
  4. To introduce no waiting at any time restrictions at the junction of Pennycress Way and Sorrell Drive;
  5. To introduce no waiting at any time restrictions at the junction of Pennycress Way and entrances to the three residential car parks;
  6. To introduce no waiting between 10am and 11am, Monday to Sunday along part of the west side Pennycress Way between Little Linford Lane and Sorrell Drive;
  7. To introduce no waiting between 10am and 11am, Monday to Sunday along parts of the east side Pennycress Way between Little Linford Lane and Sorrell Drive.

 

The above proposals come as a result of a number of concerns raised by members of the public  safety of vehicles parked in the marked unrestricted parking bays and unrestricted parts of Little Linford Lane, adjacent to the entrance to the Newport Pagnell M1 Service Station which are causing obstruction to motorists and pedestrians.

The above proposals along those parts of Pennycress Way have been included to prevent displacement parking in the neighbouring residential street.

The affected lengths of road currently have a speed limit of 30 mph imposed on them.

As the Highway Authority for the above lengths of road, Milton Keynes Council is satisfied that the introduction of the above proposed no waiting restrictions will help alleviate obstruction, allow the free passage for emergency service vehicles, prevent displacement parking and encourage a safer environment throughout.
