A Loughton Town Council committee is considering proposing parking restrictions in Forest View Road

East London and West Essex Guardian Series: Parking restrictions considered for school road Parking restrictions considered for school road

Parking restrictions are being considered after parents are said to be walking their children in the road.

Later this month the Environment and Heritage Committee of Loughton Town Council will consider asking the North Essex Parking Partnership to ban parking on one side of Forest View Road in the town because of dangerous drivers.

It was brought to the attention of the council that people are parking across pavements, forcing children to walk in the road before and after school.

The committee will consider asking the NEPP to suspend parking between 8.30am and 4pm along one side.

unbelievably, council parking wardens can't give tickets for parking on pavements as it is still a police matter.

They can, any pavement parking within the M25 area is enforceable but some councils chose not to enforce it and some do.
