NAG and Garth Hill College

One of the subjects at the recent NAG in Priestwood was Garth hill College. The new entrance is providing some challenges.
Bracknell Forest Council is looking at this, and is coming up with some proposals to help alleviate the situation.
The Education Department are currently making arrangements for a School Crossing Patrol to operate here, and for road markings to highlight this.

Some parents are stopping their vehicles adjacent to the splitter island to drop their children off and then performing a ‘U’ turn around the island onto the Millennium Way. These stopped vehicles cause cars to queue on the Millennium Way. Altering the layout of the island, should stop people doing this.

Additional waiting restrictions could increase the number of vehicles using the Albert Road car park to safely drop their children off and decrease the congestion at the school entrance.

The next Neighbourhood Forum is on Wednesday 17 November 2010, 7.30pm, at the Priestwood Community Centre.

The November neighbourhood update for Priestwood from Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) Tony Mellish can be found HERE

One of his reports is that there will be patrols outside the local schools with parking wardens over the next month. This is because we are still getting problems with parents picking up their children up outside the school.

The latest College Bulletin contains a message to parents and pupils about road safety. It can be found HERE

    Shame - don't the authorities anticipate people using their initiative for drop off points and tackling not enough parking at the college? Solution from the authorities is always - lines, signs and fines. Nice 'er in Bracknull innit? (Point to note - Mums in 4x4s have no time to consider others.)
