Parish Councillor, David Lyons, has written to Bucks County Council to voice his serious concerns over traffic management in Haddenham as the village grows. Here is his letter.
To: Cllr David Carroll
Buckinghamshire County Council
Transport Planning for Haddenham
The community of Haddenham is experiencing a massive increase in house building and a consequent increase in road traffic on the congested roads in our historic village with its many listed properties and narrow streets.
This is causing great concern amongst our residents.
The parish council has recognised the need for a traffic management plan that assesses the impact of this, but is not the road authority.
As the authority responsible for roads in Buckinghamshire, please would you tell me whether Buckinghamshire County Council has a plan in place to assess the changes needed to the road system of the village to enable our residents of all ages to live, work and play in a pleasant healthy environment, and if so, when it will be carried out.
