High Street, Buckingham Traffic-calming Consultation

Closed 4 Sep 2020

Opened 5 Aug 2020

Results updated 16 Apr 2021

We would like to thank everyone who took part in the consultation.

We received 6 responses in total through the online comment form and by email.

Responses indicate support for traffic-calming measures on Castle Street and we received no objections to this proposal. But we received some objections to the proposed raised table on High Street.

The Council Leader considered the responses and officers recommendations, taking a final decision on 6 April 2021. The decision approved traffic-calming  on Castle Street but not on High Street.

We anticipate work to install the traffic-calming measure on Castle Street will take place in June 2021.

Overview

Transport for Buckinghamshire logo

We are proposing to introduce traffic-calming in Buckingham Town Centre and invite you to comment on the proposals. We are planning to introduce a raised speed-table and to prioritise traffic approaching from West Street. We believe these measures will improve safety for motorists, pedestrian and cyclists. The work will involve:

  • installing a raised speed-table on the High Street at the traffic-light crossing near Jardine’s Pharmacy
  • installing a new Illuminated 'Give way to oncoming
    vehicles' sign on an existing street lighting column 
    outside the Villiers Hotel on Castle Street
  • painting traffic-prioritisation road markings outside the Villiers Hotel on Castle Street
