The road next to the public play area in Watery Lane.

Reported via desktop in the Parking on a footpath category anonymously at 12:24, Sun 5 November 2023

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council 1 day, 22 hours, 19 minutes later. FixMyStreet ref: 5175960.

As has been reported many times before there is an issue with vehicles being almost permanently parked in the road next to the play area.

The vehicles do not move for very long periods of time, this causes a build-up of debris, especially fallen leaves, around these vehicles. As has happened in previous years, the drains become blocked and flooding occurs. It is also very unsightly and untidy. This situation will only get worse a time goes on.

It is appreciated that this problem was addressed earlier this year, but unfortunately, we are virtually back to where it started.

Sure there must be some way of dealing with this problem on a permanent basis.

One possible way to deal with this is to introduce time limited parking.

  • This has been passed to the local area technician to investigate the enquiry/issue regarding a pothole/road surface.

    During winter months we receive a very high number of reports regarding potholes or a poor road surface, it's easy to assume that potholes are formed due to roads being poorly maintained but that is not usually the case. There are many factors that can cause potholes, particularly during the winter months when water seeps in through cracks in the road surface, collecting underneath and when the water freezes, it expands and creates cracks in the road surface.

    Our priority is always the safety of road users, so in some cases during busy periods a permanent repair is not always possible immediately. However, temporary repairs are a way to ensure the area is safe until such times as we can return to make a permanent repair.
