As part of a package of measures to deal with ongoing parking problems outside of schools, a parking enforcement vehicle is being operated by Northumberland County Council to monitor school keep clear restrictions. From information gathered by the enforcement vehicle camera, any vehicle found to be parked in contravention of the regulations will be issued with a Penalty Charge Notice by post.
The vehicle supports enforcement activity already carried out by Civil Enforcement Officers by increasing enforcement capacity and resource at times of the day when road safety concerns and the level of risk outside of schools increases.
We are pleased to be working in partnership with the Smarter Parker initiative (part of the Schools Go Smarter programme). This initiative is aimed at helping parents understand the benefits of parking responsibly in order to help keep children safe.
Please park with safety in mind.
