Problem Parking in Parish

Eaton Bray Parish Council are concerned about the dangerous parking of vehicles in the parish and that it contravenes Highways Code rule 217:

217: DO NOT park your vehicle or trailer on the road where it would endanger, inconvenience or obstruct pedestrians or other road users.

For example, do not stop:

  • near a school entrance
  • anywhere you would prevent access for Emergency Services
  • at or near a bus stop or taxi rank
  • on the approach to a level crossing
  • opposite or within 10 metres (32 feet) of a junction, except in an authorised parking space
  • near the brow of a hill or hump bridge
  • opposite a traffic island or (if this would cause an obstruction) another parked vehicle
  • where you would force other traffic to enter a tram lane
  • where the kerb has been lowered to help wheelchair users
  • in front of an entrance to a property
  • on a bend

The Parish Council respectfully ask that vehicle owners find a suitable place to park that does not contravene the Highway Code or endanger other road users.


If you would like to get involved in trying to slow down traffic in the village/concerned about road safety, please contact the Parish Clerk.
