Summary

We’ve been asked to look at how we can improve road safety on Tickford Street between Priory Street and Vantage Court. Concerns about road safety and speeding vehicles have been raised with us by the ward councillors, Newport Pagnell Town Council and in petitions by residents.One petition raised concerns around speeding and the other mainly from Salmon Yard residents raised concerns about visibility at the junction with Salmon Yard/ Tickford Street. 

The main safety issues come from vehicles parking on the verges and footways which obstructs pedestrians and cyclists and limits visibility for all road users.

The proposed restrictions will help alleviate obstruction, improve visibility  and allow the free passage for emergency service vehicles and buses and encourage a safer environment for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists.

Milton Keynes Council is now formally consulting on the following proposed Traffic Regulation Orders:

  1. The Council of the Borough of Milton Keynes (The Council of the Borough of Milton Keynes) (Various Roads, Newport Pagnell) (Consolidation of Parking and Waiting Restrictions) Order 2002) Variation Order 2021;
  2. The Council of the Borough of Milton Keynes (The Council of the Borough of Milton Keynes) (Various Roads, Newport Pagnell) (Prohibition and Restriction of Waiting) Order 2009) Revocation Order 2021;
  3. The Council of the Borough of Milton Keynes (The Council of the Borough of Milton Keynes) (Tickford Street (Part), Newport Pagnell) (Footway/Carriageway Parking Places) Order 2009) Variation Order 2021.

The effect of the proposed Orders will be to introduce the following parking restrictions along parts of Tickford Street, Severn Drive and Chartwell Road in Newport Pagnell:

  • No waiting at any time restrictions (double yellow lines) along sections of the Tickford Street, Severn Drive and Chartwell Road.
  • No stopping except for buses along sections of Tickford Street.
  • Introduction of footway and carriageway parking places along sections of Tickford Street.
  • 2x disabled persons’ parking places in Chartwell Road.

The Council considers it expedient to make this Order:

  • to facilitate the expeditious, convenient and safe movement of vehicular and pedestrian traffic along the affected lengths of roads;
  • for avoiding danger to persons or other traffic using the road or any other road or for preventing the likelihood of any such danger arising.

 Copies of the notice of proposal, proposed Orders together with plans showing the general arrangements and a statement of reasons, are available for inspection in the “Documents” section.

Any objections to the above proposals, together with the grounds upon which they are made, must be sent to us by 5pm on Thursday 18 February 2021. Any comments received after this date will not be considered.

 

Purpose

These proposals aim to address issues about road safety raised by the ward councillors, Newport Pagnell Town Council and in petitions by residents.

Parked vehicles hindering visibility, speeding vehicles and obstructive parking are all included in the concerns raised to the Highways Team.
