Do You Have Car Parking Issues? We Need Your Help!
The Village Survey in 2014 highlighted the community concern regarding the lack of parking, especially in the older parts of the village. Comments highlighted various frustrations of residents, especially those relying on street parking who are sometimes unable to park adjacent to their homes. The issue is further complicated in that the Survey also showed residents wanted the Parish Council to take action to reduce parking on verges and in particular the village green.
As in past years the Parish Council has spoken again with South Northants Council and Northants County Council who can offer no obvious solutions or funds to alleviate this problem.
Being pragmatic, any improvements to parking within the village will need to be identified, funded (if required) and implemented from within the Aynho community.
To better understand the scope of the problem, the Parish Council has decided to run a simple feedback survey across the affected areas of the village; we’d like to gauge the scale of the problem and frustrations it causes and invite your ideas. In tandem, the Parish Council will canvas local businesses and organisations.
Our hope is that we (the residents) might collectively identify one or two ideas that help alleviate some (or all) of the parking frustrations at no (or low) cost.
During the next few days residents in the Conservation area will receive their Survey form – which can be completed online or using the paper-copy – with all Surveys required before or by Friday 27-May.
If you opt to complete the Survey online – which is easy and simple to use – you’ll need the password to log-on and your security code both of which are on the accompanying letter.
If you opt to complete the paper-copy this will need to be handed into reception at the Cartwright and they’ll pass onto the Parish Council, or we’ll collect it from you before/on Friday 27-May.
