Plans to introduce Pay and Display parking in Marlow town centre have been abandoned.
Following a public consultation about on-street parking options in Marlow Town centre held earlier in 2018, Transport for Buckinghamshire (TfB) has collated and reviewed all of the responses about proposed parking measures for Marlow Town Centre. The consultation included the possible implementation of pay and display to control limited waiting parking.
The majority of residents, businesses, the Town Council and the local County Councillor made their opposition to paid parking very clear. As a result TfB will not be implementing this element of the proposed parking plan.
Councillor Mark Shaw, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Transportation, commented: ‘The strength of feeling against paid parking on-street in Marlow came through loud and clear, so we will not be taking forward these proposals at the current time.
We never wanted to impose anything that would be detrimental to the town, and will continue to look for options to better manage parking in this busy and thriving town centre.‘
Buckinghamshire County Council will shortly be consulting formally on limited parking restrictions around Marlow, designed to improve road safety and congestion at junctions, as part of the wider consultation on parking.
