Parking near schools

There are no special arrangements allowing parents to set down and pick up school children in any location and any parents choosing to take their children to school by car must obey the parking regulations in place.

This is true for resident parking bays and pay and display parking bays as well as single and double yellow lines and the zig zag markings.

School Keep Clear markings

Where you see yellow zig zags and the words "School Keep Clear" accompanied by a yellow sign stating the times of restrictions vehicles must NOT stop at all during the times shown, even to drop someone off or pick them up

Apart from emergency services vehicles dealing with incidents, there are no exceptions to this and a Penalty Charge Notice may be issued instantly.

Blue Badge holders

Blue Badge holders may not park or stop on School Keep Clear markings during the restriction period.
