Parking rules to be enforced
10:40am Saturday 28th April 2012 in News
PARKING restrictions could be tightened near a town school after residents’ complaints.
New rules could be introduced at Mabel’s Furlong because parents picking up and dropping pupils at nearby John Masefield High School are using it to park.
The road adjoins the entrance to the school.
Some residents have raised concerns with the town council over the level of parking in the residential road.
One idea being considered by town councillors who are making recommendations to highways officers at Worcestershire County Council, was to create a change of priority for traffic from Mabel’s Furlong in favour of the school drive.
But town councillors were concerned this might increase the speed of vehicles exiting the school drive, in the direction of the Gloucester Road.
Town councillors are now recommending there should be parking restrictions in front of the Mabel’s Furlong sub-station, and those restrictions could extend from there to all the way to the school drive junction.
