Lib Dem Councillor for Westerleigh ward, Claire Young, has today called upon South Gloucestershire Council to take action on speeding and dangerous parking around the Manor C of E Primary School in Coalpit Heath.
Claire said, “Poor parking and speeding on the roads around the school are a real concern for both parents and local residents. I recently carried out a survey of residents living nearby and found that the majority supported a 20mph limit on Roundways, St Anne’s Drive and Henfield Road leading up to the school. I took this to a meeting of the Council’s Transport committee and will continue to lobby for action.
“I also asked the committee to make sure that the council can use its parking enforcement car to help tackle the parking problems. There are no simple solutions and a number of ideas have been tried over the years, including white lines on the road and a PCSO working with the children to create flyers to hand out. It’s important to try new approaches and I want to make sure the council is playing its part in this as fully as possible.”Leave a comment
