A WARNING has been issued to parents in one Herefordshire town as police battle a repeated problem.

Locals have been left frustrated by "inconsiderate" parents parking at drop-off and pick-up times outside Bromyard's St Peter's Primary School.


PC Lowri Jones, of Bromyard's Safer Neighbourhood Team, said she and fellow officers "have been working hard to combat some inconsiderate parking at St Peters Primary School in Bromyard".

"Do not block driveways on Cherry Tree Close, residents need access to their own homes," PC Jones said.

PC Jones also warned that parents should not park on junctions, as this blocks visibility, and should not park on any zig zags, double yellow lines or keep clear spaces, these are there for the safety of the children.

The warning comes as children are set to return to school today after a week's half-term holiday.

"Inconsiderate or illegal parking can put pedestrians and other road users in danger. It can also create an obstruction for emergency vehicles," PC Jones said.

The primary school, which is part of the Three Counties Academies Trust, which is also responsible for Bromyard's Queen Elizabeth High School, Bredenbury Primary School, and Stoke Prior Primary School, is set at the end of a cul-de-sac in the town. 

It is surrounded by homes, and is just off Winslow Road, a residential street which runs from the A44 to Tenbury Road.
