School Parking

Good Afternoon!

Our Neighbourhood Policing Team would like to send out a polite reminder regarding parking during the school run’s


Firstly, we would like to acknowledge that some villages and schools were not designed to have the amount of school traffic that we currently have, and that the ‘school run’ can be a nightmare for some!


However, throughout Derwentside, we receive regular complaints regarding the manner of parking from those who are picking up and dropping off their children.

We know this is an ongoing issue for many schools, we kindly ask you think carefully about where you park.



A reminder it is an offence to park on;

zig zags

double yellow lines

on the edge of junctions

dropped curbs

• Please do not block driveway or access roads as it has been reported residents have been unable to get out.

• Please consider parking further away from the school and walking.

Children safety is our primary concern, by adhering to the rules and being aware of your surroundings, this will ensure we keep our children safe whilst walking to and from the school.

We look forward to seeing you at the schools, come and say hello!

Have a great day,

Consett Neighbourhood Policing Team
