Tattenhoe Ward Councillors clamp down on poor parking with Bucks Fire Service

Tattenhoe Ward Councillors, in close collaboration with Buckinghamshire Fire Service, have launched a campaign to crack down on poor and dangerous parking in their ward.

Tattenhoe, Kingsmead and Oxley Park struggle to accommodate enough parking spaces for local residents and visitors alike thus this issue has been an increasing source of frustration in these communities. This lack of safe parking has led to cars being parked dangerously, blocking safe access to roads and pathways. Rightfully, residents have raised concerns about the ability of emergency services to access their homes due to this ongoing inconsiderate parking.


James Lancaster, local councillor for Tattenhoe Ward, said, "The safety of all residents is utmost, and so we planned this joint operation to highlight the importance of parking safely, as we do not want ever want our residents to feel that the emergency services cannot get to you on time." Lancaster continued, "This has to be a collective effort, and we can't make it work without the residents' support, understanding, and collaboration."


Local councillor, Shazna Muzammil, said “We are attempting to promote safer and better parking for emergency vehicles to enter the streets as fast and safely as feasible. We do not want you to park in such a way that a fire engine, ambulance, or other emergency vehicle cannot get through to aid other people, potentially putting lives at risk."


In response to their resident’s concerns, Tattenhoe Ward Councillors will launch their campaign on 27th November, 11am-1pm, at Sinatra Drive in Oxley Park and make its way through to Kingsmead and Tattenhoe. The fire department, alongside local Councillors James Lancaster, Shazna Muzammil, and Manish Verma, will distribute fliers, knock on doors, and talk to people about the importance of mindful parking.


Local councillor, Manish Verma, said “As Ward Councillors, the safety of our resident’s is our upmost priority. We call on all our residents to engage with this campaign and play their party to keep our communities safe. We hope that our campaign will kickstart action across Milton Keynes, promoting safe parking and roads for our residents and emergency services alike”
