School Gate 'Parking Buddies'

To be completed by:

Time: - | Venue:

The bright child-shaped signs known as ‘Parking buddies’ are becoming increasingly popular in many schools, however, the Department for Transport have strict criteria about what can and cannot be placed on the highway (road or pavement) and the Parking Buddies are classed as an illegal obstruction.

If you’ve purchased Parking Buddies and are currently using them on the highway, then you may wish to consider alternative methods of displaying them. The buddies could be removed from their bases and attached to your school railings, or they could be displayed from within the school playground, near to entrance/ exit points.

Please see attached the School Gate Parking lamp post signs and banners which can be purchased from the council and the leaflet that can be requested free of charge. We can also provide a letter from the police to be given out to parents.     Boards & Banners Price List  School Gate Parking Leaflet
