Tackling unsafe school parking aim of review

TACKLING unsafe parking outside Warwickshire schools is the aim of a newly launched review.

Residents are being urged to share thoughts and experiences of parking outside county schools.

Warwickshire County Council, Warwickshire Police and Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner are undertaking the review as inconsiderate, unsafe and illegal parking is an ongoing problem.

Headteachers, parents/carers and residents and puts the safety of children, and others, at risk. Partners and organisations are working together to review parking issues outside schools in a bid to tackle the problems schools, parents and the wider community experience.

Parents, carers, school or local resident can participate in a (five minute) school parking survey. All responses, which will remain anonymous, will be analysed and used by partners to identify the specific issues and safety concerns that arise from it. Feedback will help focus efforts, and shape future initiatives to address unsafe and inconsiderate school parking, helping to make the roads outside and around Warwickshire schools safer.

Warwickshire transport spokesman Coun Wallace Redford said: “We recognise that there can be a variety of different problems with parking at our schools across Warwickshire.

“We are very keen to hear from headteachers, parents, carers and residents about the problems that they are experiencing in their areas to help us better prioritise our resources to make things better.”

Insp Sally Bunyard-Spiers of Warwickshire Police said: “School parking is a challenge around the county, with schools having a range of different problems. Inviting schools, residents and parents and carers to share their views on school parking will allow partners to understand the problem in more detail and target initiatives to where there is a need.”

“This is an opportunity for residents to share their thoughts, ideas and concerns about inconsiderate, unsafe and illegal parking, outside and around Warwickshire schools.”
