Background

Grove Academy has recently opened its brand new building in Chalvey, and all of its pupils are returning to school at this site from March 2021.

As part of the planning permission for the new building, the developer has submitted a local transport strategy, and provided funding to the council. This is to reduce the impacts of increased traffic on local residents and businesses, to deter private car use for travel to and from school, and to encourage travel to and from school by active and sustainable modes such as walking, cycling and public transport.

The scheme

One of the measures being introduced is a residents parking scheme, and associated parking restrictions.

This should reduce the likelihood of danger, congestion and poor air quality arising from indiscriminate parking, and provide convenient and easily available parking facilities for local residents and businesses. It should also deter the use of private cars for travel to and from Grove Academy and reduce additional pressure on parking space in the area.

An informal consultation on the proposed scheme took place in June 2020. The results of that consultation were analysed and discussed with ward councillors. A decision has now been made to proceed with a residents parking scheme and / or parking restrictions in the following roads:

  • Alexandra Road, Brammas Close, Chalvey Road West, Church Street, Clive Court, Greenwatt Way, High Street Chalvey, Ladbrooke Road, Primary Road, Spackmans Way, The Green, Turton Way and White Hart Road.

For this scheme only, the first resident permit requested by each eligible household will be issued free of charge for the first two years the scheme is operational.

The scheme has been introduced under an Experimental Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) which lasts up to 18 months. This means that once the TRO has become operational, the initial 6 month period acts as the consultation period. Comments received during this 6 month period will be formally logged as part of the consultation.
