School related parking issues in the vicinity of Heatherside Infant and Junior Schools

17 06 2010

Hart District Council commissioned The Stilwell Partnership to investigate parking issues in the roads surrounding Heatherside Infant and Junior Schools at School pick-up and drop-off times.
A number of locations were identified where dangerous parking occurs close to junctions and on blind bends, restricting visibility for all road users. Our particular concern was the safety of children in the road, appearing from behind cars parked in these locations.

We have developed a set of proposals on the attached drawing which aims to alleviate these problems by improving visibility for children crossing the road and cars able to see children about to cross the road. Inevitably some displacement of parking will occur, but we believe that this will be minimal and can be justified in the interests of road safety.

We are currently carrying out a consultation, inviting members of the public to let us have their comments, either through this blog or by contacting Hart District Council.
