A notorious gay sex haunt in Bisham could become a family picnic area under plans outlined by a newly-formed residents association.

Hurley Lane Residents Group is planning to address several issues in the area, including the seedy use of the A404 layby near Temple Golf Club.

Members hope to restore the layby to a scenic lunching-area and clear a public right-of-way that runs alongside it.

The group held a private meeting at Temple Golf Club on Monday attended by officials from the Royal Borough, police and Highways Agency.

A spokesman for the council said: “I can confirm that we were there. However, it was not our meeting and we have been asked not to pass on what was said.”

In May it was revealed plans to remodel the A404 layby, which is listed on websites as a ‘cruising’ zone, had been sidelined because of a lack of funding.

Other issues the group aims to tackle are general security, speeding along Hurley Lane and noise and pollution caused by ‘occasional raves’ held in the underpass under the A404.

Police and Highways Agency were contacted but did not reply before the Advertiser went to press..
