i hear the road layout in the market place is to be changed soon to allow access into the grange, 

this may mean suspension of parking in the market place...

and the work may take up to 10 weeks.....

I see the roadworks announced for the A413 which were to have taken place this past weekend did not happen. Nobody told the bus company, though, and it seems bus routes were changed to avoid the works. A poor show.

footpath to be installed on the opposite side to the shops on the market place,  a retaining wall to be installed and  some dropped curbs to signify an area to cross from the shop side to the grange side  to be installed soon, - 

parking to be suspended  in the market place for numerous weeks while the works are carried out

No-one told the workmen on the A413 either, who were busy putting out cones and diversions signs at 9am on Saturday, but they (and all the signs) had disappeared again by 10.

Do you know Baggles if they are going to widen the market place? I was thinking with the new footpath and 2 lorries/buses possibly meeting, people walking on the Grange side could be in serious danger from the traffic.

no ....as far as i know the road will not be widened... but i do know concerns have been raised about HGV's raised by parish council and also by village residents
as far as i am aware its merely removal of undergrowth, addition of a pathway and retaining wall, there is going to be the left turn as you go up the market place into the grange  ( which i am guessing may need a wider section or the permanent removal of parking spaces on the opposite side of the road- so HGV's can turn in and out of the grange onto the market place ), but lets see, the bucks highways blokes  were measuring the road recently...
maybe we will get a wider stretch of highway ?  here is hoping !


its the possible change now from the residential care home to assisted living flats thats got me looking at it all again.... i am wondering if this will be within the same footprint ?

need a stella and i need one now !

The standard of the wall alongside the new pavement is an insult to this village, I am hoping residents might feel inclined to complain to Persimmon, post some footage on YouTube - anything to try and get an improved wall. I am in contact with our MP and Chiltern District Council but with not much effect. If you feel strongly about this insult please act.

There is some info re this awful wall on Streetlife, if enough residents can give opinions just maybe we could create enough of a plan of action to have some effect, after all who's village is this?

Completely agree re wall! Have been told that it is to be rendered and painted and planting put in place? So this isn't the finished wall?
