Parking near to schools
In the streets surrounding some schools, large numbers of vehicles transporting children may enter the locality at specific times of the day.
We can carry out enforcement where parking restrictions exist and can also address the blocking of pedestrian/disabled dropped kerb crossing points and dropped kerb vehicle access crossings. If restrictions exist, please let us know online.
If there are no restrictions in place and there are issues of vehicles parked dangerously, then this is a matter for the police.
The police can also address offences of wilful and unnecessary obstruction of the road or footway, the blocking of pedestrian/disabled crossing points, obstruction of vehicle access crossings, dangerous parking on pedestrian crossing zig-zag markings and issues of double parking or parking too close to a junction. When addressed by the police, these offences may be subject to an immediate fixed penalty notice.
The police can be contacted on their non-emergency number 101.
However, there may be different solutions available to tackling the problem and this can be discussed with your local community highway liaison team.
