Parking restrictions, including double-yellow lines, are to be brought in outside a school in Kimberley.

Parking and waiting is to be banned outside The Kimberley School in Newdigate Street to stop people double parking on the bend opposite the school.

No waiting restrictions will also be placed on a short section of nearby Victoria Street.

The news comes following several years of complaints by local residents, and subsequent campaigning by local councillors.

The restrictions are being introduced to ensure the road is kept clear of parked vehicles during school opening and closing times.

The ‘no stopping’ order prohibits vehicles from pulling up outside the school entrance.

On Newdigate Street the double-yellow lines will start from near the existing speed bumps at the bottom of Cloverlands Drive and finish about ten metres west of the driveway to the school and leisure centre.

On Victoria Street the yellow lines will extend three metres past the end of the existing lines.

The plan is now out for consultation.
