Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council says its wardens have stepped up patrols since September 3 to tackle “inconsiderate” parking.

Views are being sought in an online survey here.

The council said: “We have launched an initiative to help tackle the issue of inconsiderate parking near schools during the morning drop-off and afternoon pick up periods.”

The school, with four others in the borough, will be subject to “intensive parking enforcement” for 12 weeks, it said.

The council said:  “If your children attend any of these schools, if you work at any of the schools or if you are a pedestrian or driver who walks or drives past the school, we are keen to know if you think the initiative has reduced parking around the school; so please spend a few minutes filling in this survey.”

Earlier this year, the council agreed to put double yellowlines on part of Station Road to apply at school times only.
