Inconsiderate, unsafe and illegal parking around schools is an ongoing concern for 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 to greater understand and address the problems schools, parents, and the wider community experience. Partners would like to invite you as a parent or carer, school or local resident to participate in a (5 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. Cllr Wallace Redford, Warwickshire County Council’s portfolio holder for Transport and Planning, 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.” This is your opportunity to share your thoughts, ideas, and concerns about inconsiderate, unsafe and illegal parking, outside and around local Warwickshire schools.
