New parking restrictions are in place along "Lower Road", between 10.00am and 4.00pm parking limited to 2 hours, and there are far less parking bays, it will significantly help the traffic flow along there.

And surrounding roads without parking restrictions will take the hit!
Too many laws...
Too few examples...

Fantastic work by Anne Marie and Tony who have worked for 3 years plus to get restrictions put in place. I believe there are additional lines going in around Orchard Grove and The Vale too? Hopefully the office staff will now (when they are back) park in the village car parks and walk to the office as it was primarily them that was causing an issue. Sadly if they park in other roads those residents will have to go through the same process that Croft Road and Lower Road residents have had to go through. Massive thanks to all those who worked to make this happen.

Is there a park and ride system in place too? I often see the bus ferrying from the offices to (I assume) somewhere in the Chalfont Park area. There’s no reason for them to park in the village at all if so, and maybe the employers need to emphasise the point to their staff.

I believe it picks up staff near Costa's in GX.

People who work in the village have every right to park in the village. 

The workers bring much needed revenue to the shops and restaurants in the village.

I do agree Malc London and they can park in the car parks available to them, use the park and ride, park sensibly on street. They do not have the right to park how and where they like though! It's a shame they couldn't park sensibly on the roads in the first place but they were just so selfish, blocking driveways, parking right up to the edge of driveways and then opposite driveways so it was actually impossible to get your car off the drive, all over the pavements, etc.

The problem is what causes them to want to park 'there' in the first place. Poor long term planning by local authorities (and the government), local authorities without the ability to say NO. Planning policies that escalate house prices. New estates with insufficient parking on the basis that if you restrict parking then cycling, walking, car sharing, etc. will be encouraged. One day they'll realise that urbanisation is not needed, sustainable communities are. 
*** If you're not part of the solution, you may be part of the problem!

If an employer provides a park and ride system there is obviously a good reason and so employees should use it. The reason is clearly to prevent them from taking up many spaces available to local residents. It would not surprise me if it was part of the planning permission to build the offices in the first place. It’s just common sense and it is irrelevant if they buy sandwiches for lunch locally. They were obviously causing a serious problem on Lower Road and fortunately it’s now been resolved. I know some of the employees and I doubt they will boycott the sandwich shops because they have to use the P&R. Onwards and upwards.

If you could save £900 per year by parking on the street, would you do so? The yellow lines will just more the traffic to other local roads.
