Parking issues, especially around local schools as it is danger to children and residents

Issue raised on 18 Nov 2010

What we did: Local PCSO's have met with parents who will be sending children to the school in the new term to make clear the safety issues that exist around this sensitive area. Parking is always going to be a problem, however if parents are responsible we can make sure the area is made even safer for children. We also work closely with "NSL" who are the parking enforcement company for the local authority to patrol these areas at peak times. What happened? Road safety is an issue that will also be a top priority for many people. We will continue to work on this issue all the time to make sure that accidents are kept to a mimimum.
