Foot and cycle paths plus highway changes

The parish council is actively pursuing a number of highways and transport initiatives:

 

The Pitstone & Ivinghoe Safety Scheme

Following an investigation commissioned from Ben Hamilton-Baillie (copy of the report attached) and public consultation, both Pitstone & Ivinghoe Parish Councils are progressing options with Bucks County Council.  A Road Safety Audit has been completed and a Feasibility Report commissioned.  BCC hope to have this completed by summer 2019.

 

Cycle/footpath to Tring station

Hertfordshire County Council continues to investigate engineering options to improve pedestrian and cycle safety along Northfield Road.  The Parish Council is actively involved with this work and continues to push for a successful resolution.

 

Pitstone Community Car Scheme

Provides invaluable assistance to local residents trying to access their healthcare appointments.  This scheme is operated by volunteer drivers and will shortly be coming under the responsibility of the parish council following difficulties recruiting a volunteer co-ordinator.  Please get in touch if you can spare some time to help a resident get to the doctors/dentist/hospital.

 

Community Bus

We are currently investigating whether there is a demand for a community bus to service Pitstone & the neighbouring parishes.  Please take the time to respond to our surveys etc so that we can get accurate data.

 

Bus to Tring Station

Investigations continue to see if a viable bus service is possible to the station.  We are currently working with West Midlands Trains to collect data and explore options.
