Police and Council traffic wardens took to the streets around Tenby’s schools one day this week, to clampdown on ‘inconsiderate parking’ during pick-up and drop-off times.
Pembrokeshire Roads Policing Officers in conjunction with Tenby Neighbourhood PCSOs and Pembrokeshire County Council traffic enforcement officers carried out joint patrols in Heywood Lane, providing a visible presence to address driving and parking offences with ‘education and enforcement’ - Dyfed-Powys Police stated.
In the past, the area has been flagged-up due to complaints over inconsiderate parking caused by parents and guardians picking up pupils from nearby schools.
Complaints were also made by residents where estates and driveways were persistently blocked by vehicles pulling up for the ‘school run’.
Concerns on motorists speeding along the route have also been brought up.
Last year Councillors in Tenby raised concerns once again with PCC on the parking situation around the Tudor Way and Heywood Lane junction, stating that vehicles such as 4x4s parking right up to the junction, made the matter ‘chaotic’ causing poor visibility for children and guardians crossing the road.
It was suggested back then that the Local Authority’s parking enforcement officers undertake a ‘blitz’ of the problem area, to help alleviate the matter.
