Parking parents 'getting off lightly'

Parents who abuse parking restrictions while on the school run should be fined, a councillor says.

Councillor Gill Warners said parents are "getting off lightly" and has called for more enforcement around the Grange and New Haw schools in New Haw and potentially all schools in Runnymede.

She said a review of current parking restriction timings would provide more parking outside schools hours for local residents and "alleviate the impression that residents are given more tickets than school users who are seen by the residents to be causing a bigger impact and getting off lightly".

In a written question to Runnymede Borough Council and Surrey County Council joint committee meeting on Wednesday, Ms Warner asked for a review of enforcement staffing and operations around schools areas, a review of current parking restrictions around the Grange and New Haw schools and possibly all schools in the borough, and a review of pick-up and drop-off ability on school diagonals.

An officer responded to her calls saying the problems highlighted were "experienced at pretty much every school in the borough" and that civil enforcement officers could not be tasked exclusively to school enforcement.

No Ukip left in Surrey
