Southcourt, Aylesbury - Restriction of Motor Vehicle Use Statutory Consultation

Closed 19 Jan 2022

Opened 13 Dec 2021

Overview

Transport for Buckinghamshire logo

As part of an investment from the Department for Transport (DfT), Buckinghamshire Council implemented a programme of ‘pop-up’ and temporary Emergency Active Travel Fund schemes across the county. The schemes aimed to encourage residents to undertake more local journeys by foot and by bike, particularly during the pandemic, and could lead to longer-term benefits including reduced congestion, improved air quality, improved community cohesion and better public health.

We are therefore proposing to introduce the permanent restriction of motor vehicle use on Old Stoke Road at the junction with Clover Lane and the permanent implementation of a mandatory cycle lane on Churchill Avenue.

The restrictions are being proposed to create a quieter environment for pedestrian and cyclist users in Southcourt. The proposed implementation provides a revised route for the severed Jet Way (gemstone route) connecting Southcourt, Stoke Mandeville and Aylesbury town centre as well as supporting local routes for schools.

Please see the plans and documents below for more information.
