Several Years

Who is Affected

Residents of Lacock local businesses visitors and other road users.

What has been done so far

The Parish Council and the national Trust have over a number of years contacted the worst offending coach companies to highlight the issues but there has been no improvement.

What would resolve issue

The Parish council would like to see a ban on tourist coaches entering the village but continue to be permitted to use the coach park via Melksham Road and Hither Way. The ban will need to make provision for some coaches for school use private functions like weddings etc and service buses to continue to have access.
