recommendations and repeat business. the parking of vehicles outside the front of the
school, on the main road has got increasingly worse
www.kingsremovals.co.uk and very dangerous. Certain vehicles are parking
here everyday, on the pavement obstructing the path
and making it difficult to pass on foot, which I
believe is illegal.
As a parent of young children and a resident of
Hatfield Heath I feel that it is up to both the school
and other concerned parents to take action to stop
this parking from happening. I have spoken to the
school office and was informed that the police have
advised to take photographic evidence and forward
it on to them. Is there any other action that can be
taken towards preventing this dangerous parking? I
know that it is mentioned in every school newsletter
but this doesn’t seem to make any difference.
I look forward to hearing any suggestions you may
have to improve this situation.
