School run parents have been causing so many problems with their inconsiderate parking in Springfield that that Milton Keynes Council is proposing a yellow-line crackdown

There are also plans to introduce restrictions on the loading of vehicles. They also want to create one space for an ambulance and two spaces for disabled people, in Ravensbourne Place.

The council’s highways and transportation department says the proposal comes “following concerns raised over public safety which is caused by inconsiderate parking during school drop off and pick up times at Orchard Academy, Springfield Boulevard.”

They conclude that the proposed restrictions will help create a “safer environment throughout the road and encourage and facilitate safer pedestrian and cyclist movements.”
