Parking risk to youngsters

Have your say

INCONSIDERATE parking is said to be putting the lives of little children at risk as they attend a Sheffield nursery.

A report to Sheffield Council’s North East Community Assembly, which meets tomorrow evening at Shirecliffe Community Centre, reveals problems with vehicles parking on footways around Milestone Nursery on Verdant Way, rather than finding a legal place to park.

Officers said the issue is putting pedestrians, which include pre-school children, at risk.

Measures proposed to alleviate the problem involve Keep Clear markings and extended double yellow lines, plus bollards at the junction of Verdant Way and Hatfield House Lane, to be installed over the coming year at a cost of around £10,000.
