City Cllr for Bobblestock and Mayor, Charles Nicholls (IOC) and neighbouring ward member, Cllr Mark Mansell (IOC) went down to the entrance to the Three Elms Trading Estate to see what could be done regards the issue of unauthorised parking on the estate and along the verge of the access road to the estate.
Businesses on Three Elms and other parents have complained to the Council and school about their frustrations over the school run parking. The Range superstore (on site of old Homebase store) allows parents of Trinty School to park in their own carpark (30 metres away from the entrance over the brook to Trinity) but some parents seem unaware of this permission. Some parents also seem unwilling to walk the extra 10 metres.
Cllr Mark Mansell, who has a son at the school, says he “understands the frustrations and concerns of both parents and the businesses on Three Elms”. Cllr Nicholls hopes the possibility of “clearer signing and better communication between the school and the parents” will encourage all parents to use The Range carpark to drop off and collect children.
