We all need the Council to resolve the issue on the street ASAP as this is just a small road, we need you to put a yellow line on the school side from top to bottom of the street for safety issue. The Traffic and Safety Team has been on the street on and off for over 7 years now and say we need the yellow line to be put down so the Traffic Team can do their job before someone gets killed one day. Also, there are a minority of people who park irresponsibly or inconsiderately on both sides of the road which causes safety concerns for all.

Lead Petitioner for Parking & Safety Concerns on Hillington Rise

Re: Parking and Safety Concerns on Hillington Rise associated with Glade Hill Primary and Nursery School.
Thank you for your petition submitted to Nottingham City Council on 4th March 2019 highlighting parking concerns in and around the above area.
Firstly, I’m very sorry that you are experiencing difficulties with inconsiderate non-residential parking within your local community. This is a difficult situation and one that is unfortunately a common occurrence in the vicinity of many schools across the city and indeed up and down the country. On a positive note, there are measures that we can consider to alleviate the problem of inconsiderate parking and below I have set out what the options might be for further consideration.
The desired outcome of your petition is for the Council to implement a form of waiting restriction on one side of Hillington Rise. There are a couple of main types of waiting restrictions, namely “No Waiting at Any Time” (Double Yellow Lines) or a Limited Waiting restriction (Single Yellow Lines) with a relevant time associated. Generally, the second option of a single yellow line is implemented around Schools between 8:30-9:30 and 2:30-4pm in line with peak journey times. The first steps would be to gauge the full extent of the problem, discuss this with your local councillors and seek to identify any available funding source to fulfil the requirement. Subject to necessary funding being identified, the process for consulting on a Traffic Regulation Order could then commence.
We have also been working with the school and offered a full road safety education programme with sustainable walking initiatives. I hope this ensures you that as an authority we are working hard to focus on the needs of our citizens through a cleaner more sustainable transport vision. Finally, may I thank you again for bringing these matters to our attention and trust that the proposed way forward mentioned above will go some way to alleviating your concerns on this matter.
