Buxlow Prep School Proposed School Safety Scheme

Closes 2 Jul 2021

Opened 10 Jun 2021

Overview

The council has received a request for School Keep Clear Markings outside Buxlow Preparatory Schools. Officers have visited the site and are proposing School Keep Clear Markings to improve the road safety outside of the school.

The aim of the scheme is to:

  • Prevent obstructive parking and dangerous parking
  • Improve visibility
  • Improve road safety for motorists, pedestrians and cyclists, particularly the vulnerable road users
  • Enable the Council to take effective enforcement action, including the use of CCTV camera cars where vehicles stop to set down passengers or park at the junction

Why we are consulting

The proposal is to introduce a School Keep Clear marking outside of the school property boundary on Castleton Gardens, HA9. Operational Monday to Friday 8am-9:30am and 2:30pm to 4:30pm.

School Keep Clear markings are shown as yellow zigzags outside of schools. This marking prohibits vehicles to park or even stop to set down passengers whilst the restrictions are in force.

The markings will prohibit vehicles from parking or stopping outside Buxlow Preparatory School, reducing congestion and improving road safety for all road users.
