Conservatives Call for parent and child parking spaces in CMK
The relocation of the registry office from Bletchley to the Civic Offices in CMK has prompted calls for wider parking spaces for parents and children.
Conservative Councillor Alice Jenkins has asked the Leader of the Council to look into providing car parking spaces with adequate room to remove a car seat by the Civic Office, given new parents will now be coming in to register their child’s birth at the Civic Offices.
Cllr Jenkins said:
"Having made regular trips to the Council with my newborn, I quickly realised that you can’t get a car seat out of a car around Civic Offices, particularly during peak times when most of the spaces are filled.
"With parents coming to register their child’s birth in the centre of town at Civic Offices now, it is surely common sense that this needs to be addressed.
"I've asked the Council to look into the possibility of offering spaces wide enough to open car doors fully to get car seats out, close to the new registry offices entrance.
"It seems a no brainer to me."
Leader of the Council Peter Marland agreed at Full Council (18th July) to look into it as soon as possible.
