Harvington C of E First and Nursery School

‘Together we love, learn and grow’


On Tuesday 24th October 2023 PC 22360 Hoggarth attended Harvington C of E First and Nursery School to speak with staff regarding several issues raised regarding parking. Specific issues with road markings and problem areas have been identified and Worcestershire County Council and Highways will be made aware. 

Local officers will be patrolling the area at relevant times and will deal with any persistent offenders.


The best advice is to either walk or allow time to find a parking space and be prepared to walk a short distance to the school.


  • ️Do not drop your children off on the yellow zigzag lines as they are there for safety reasons.


  • ️Do not block residents driveways. Try not to double park as that restricts the traffic flow and causes frustration and may impede emergency vehicles.


  • ️Do not park on or opposite junctions as this restricts visibility and is dangerous. This is a complaint we receive a lot! The Highway Code advises drivers not to stop or park opposite or within 10 metres of a junction. 


  • ️Do not park on a bend, a dropped kerb or the brow of a hill.


  • ️Do not block pavements which would force pedestrians into the road.


  •  Always aim to let your children out by the door nearest the kerbside.


 Should anyone see any illegal or dangerous parking then you can send either video or photographic evidence to Op Snap. Op Snap enables members of the public to report and submit digital footage showing potential traffic offences via a secure online form. Please note general parking complaints are unable to be dealt with via Op Snap and should be directed to the relevant local authority, however any parking on Zig Zag lines or parking that is placing pedestrians at risk will be actioned.
