Councillor Stuart King said:

‘These roads are a school run traffic headache for everyone, so this trial is about improving child safety and boosting walking and the environment.
‘By getting hundreds of individual parents to park legally outside these pedestrian zones or – even better – at home, we hope this will make a big difference and we want to hear what people think.
‘The temporary number plate cameras will help our officers make a fair decision on who can drive through the pedestrian zones and who can't, allowing residents, their visitors, school staff and delivery drivers to go about their business as usual.’

How do delivery drivers go about their business as usual if they have to apply for permits?
How do they know if they need them?

The Notice and Order - bit.ly/2iqYOs6 + bit.ly/2g8Skx4 - state:
"prohibit any motorised vehicle entering the streets listed below during the periods specified, with an exemption for those HOLDING a valid permit issued by the Council"
"no person shall cause any vehicle to enter the streets shown"
"“permit” means a permit issued by the Council;"
"Nothing in Article 3 of this Order shall apply to a valid permit holder."

It is said they can simply ignore the signs and get the delivery destination to ask the council to exempt them after the event.
Is this correct?
How does this comply with the requirement to HOLD a permit when ENTERING the roads?

What happens if the householder is not at home?

Surely it is far more dangerous for cars to drive and reverse in and out of drives across pavements busy with parents and children than simply to park in the road?

"Police said the 4x4 'had been parked in a driveway, rolled down the hill and collided with a wall which collapsed.'"

Why does the council consider it right to organise an unfair and discriminatory scheme and system which demonises parents with children and arbitrarily determines them as not needing or being deserving of motor vehicle access to their school, but that residents, their visitors, school staff and delivery drivers should be deemed to need motor vehicle access to premises in the road?

Yours faithfully,

Lorraine McLeod
