School Run Issues:

The Parish Council does not want to stop parents using Banks Park for parking during the school run.

HPC works with the school travel plan co-ordinators to make sure parking is available for the school run, to help ensure the safety of the children, and because councilors realise we all have busy lives that mean parents are often en-route to somewhere else so it is not always possible to walk.

The timing of the school run doesn't generally coincide with times of high usage of the Banks Park car park in the mornings but it does often in the afternoons and we then have problems with inconsiderate parking.

The problem is more with school staff parking all day, and groups meeting for walks or coach trips and leaving cars for long periods of time.
