Parking and Traffic

 

PERHAPS THE MOST CONTENTIOUS ISSUE IN HENLEY IN ARDEN!

TRAFFIC & PARKING

The JPC are aware of the concern exhibited by many residents about the flagrant abuse of speed limits and illegal parking in our town. None of these concerns will be overlooked however, in the real world, every measure taken to manage these problems ends up with a cost which has to be met by the resident through the precept.

The JPC are now actively looking at practical ways to raise revenue, along with other Parishes in the area, with a view to introducing traffic calming and acceptable parking amenities for both residents and visitors alike.

NOT EASY!

At the JPC Meeting on Monday the 17th of June last, assurances were given to the public, that these difficult issues will be dealt with and dealt with urgently.

This page will carry a full account of our progress and, at any stage, please feel free to send your comments to the JPC Parish Clerk – email address at footer.
