SBDC: Bishop Centre - No Vehicular use of Hitcham Road Access Point
We the undersigned Petition South Bucks District Council to restrict the Hitcham Road Access Point of the Bishop Centre Development to Routine Pedestrian/Cycle use only (with provision for use in exceptional circumstances as a vehicle access point).
As local residents we are very concerned about the increased amount of traffic that will be generated along Hag Hill Lane as a result of it being used as a shortcut to and from the Hitcham Road access point by drivers wishing to avoid queues on the Bath Road.
Hag Hill Lane is a residential lane with no pavements along most of its length which is routinely used by residents including children walking to and from school.
Given our local knowledge of the current traffic situation and the weaknesses in the transport assessment carried out by Land Securities in agreement with Buckinghamshire County Council Highways Agency (Transport for Buckinghamshire), we feel there has not been due consideration to the impact on the use of Hag Hill Lane by traffic as a result of the current development. (See attached appendix for analysis of the Transport Assessment).
The profitability of the new development should not be put above the safety of the residents of the Hag Hill Neighbourhood and our children.
