After nearly a year of work by your local councillors, public consultation is expected to begin shortly on proposed new parking restrictions in the vicinity of Wickham Common Primary School, including the junction of Gates Green Road and Hartfield Crescent.
The proposals will include ‘zig-zag’ markings around the corners of the junction and part-time parking restrictions along sections of Gates Green Road to allow traffic to pass, hopefully tackling the ‘gridlock’ that currently occurs during school opening an closing times.
Draft plans were made available by your local councillors at the Wickham Common Residents Association AGM where initial comments were made and will be passed to the highway engineers.
If the consultation results are favourable then work is planned to be completed in time for the start of the Autumn term.

It was great to see the addition of the long awaited yellow lines. It is such a shame that the parents at the school do not seem to have noticed them as they are still parking on them at the most dangerous times. Come on police/council/traffic wardens, let’s see these lines enforced and on the spot fines given to these law breakers.
