In 2015 Ivinghoe Parish council, concerned about the increasing volume and speed of traffic using the B488 and B489, commissioned Hamilton-Baillie Associates to produce a report on potential traffic calming measures to address the problem. The report was completed and presented to the council in December 2015. Pitstone Parish Council also commissioned a similar report from Hamilton-Baillie Associates.
Currently a Stage 1 Road Safety Audit, funded by both Ivinghoe and Pitstone Councils with matched funding from the Local Area Forum (LAF), is being carried out across both parishes. It is hoped that this report will be completed by the end of August 2016 and can be used to support a further application for LAF funds to carry out a full feasibility study across the Parishes.
