Parking near Grafton Primary School

TodayI held a street meeting outside Grafton Primary School to talk to residents who are unable to get off their drives because some parents are blocking them in when they park to collect their kids. Clearly this not acceptable. Whilst parents have a right to pick up their kids from school, they should not be preventing residents from getting on and off their drives. At the meeting I was joined by the residents, the Council, the Headteacher of the school as well as the Police and local councillors. As a result of today’s meeting the Council have now agreed to carry out a survey of the area to see if it’s possible to put up CCTV cameras so that they can fine those who park irresponsibly.
