It comes after he joined forces with Bletchley East Councillor Emily Darlington to secure funding for the new lines.

Cllr Hume, who is a member of Bletchley and Fenny Stratford Town Council, said: “I was contacted by residents of Manor Road about inconsiderate parking in the cul-de-sac on Manor Road which is causing obstruction to local residents when entering and leaving the cul-de-sac.

"The council consulted with the residents on several options to extend the existing double yellow lines and as a result the council has now acted and installed the much needed double yellow lines.”

Cllr Hume said: "I believe these will make a huge difference. Inconsiderate parking must always be challenged and I am pleased that the work has been completed.

“Tackling inconsiderate parking is about making roads safer and also about removing problems that frankly can drive local residents to despair."
