Emily Brough (Parking Project Engineer) summarised that:
In response to the Chair, Emily Brough confirmed she looked at all primary schools in Warwickshire to get the ones on the list. Collisions involving pedestrians were prioritised along with the more severe collisions. All primary schools will get this eventually, but the listed schools would be prioritised first. The Chair noted that TROs are done in batches.
In response to the Councillor Chilvers, Emily Brough stated that most the work for the TROs had been done as they needed to do mapping for enforcement.
Following a supplementary from Councillor Chilvers, Emily Brough clarified that primary schools were focused on first as more commuters came in care but secondary schools could be looked at in the future.
Following a question from Councillor Bhagwant Pandher, Emily Brough said there would first be one enforcement vehicle for the listed locations to make sure it works, if successful they would obtain several for four years. The TRO had scope to instal static cameras outside schools, but it was unknown which schools would need these most. Therefore, the mobile vehicle would be installed first then static cameras could be investigated.
In response to Councillor Sinclair, Emily Brough said no timeframes were available yet as the TRO needed to be done first along with mapping for the contractors. She agreed to share details on the contractors timeframes when available.
In response to Councillor Mejar Singh, Emily Brough said that this scheme should lead to behavioural change and get parents to park further away from the school as the vehicles will be a physical presence. This will make the keep clear zone less congested.
Following a question from Councillor Baxter-Payne. Emily Brough confirmed that they were liaising with the School Education team and they were restarting the ‘cars and kids don’t mix’ campaign on educating parents to not park on or blocking drives of residents near schools.
