An education chief is encouraging parents not to park outside a New Costessey school during busy pick up or drop off times.
The issue of parents parking on the streets around Costessey Junior School on Three Mile Lane, especially along Rowan Court, was raised at a Costessey Town Council meeting during a discussion over matters for the police.
Tony Hull, chief executive officer of the Evolution Academy Trust which runs Costessey Junior School, has apologised to surrounding neighbours for the 'minority' of people who parked on the road close to the school.
Mr Hull said: 'We don't want it to be an inconvenience to neighbours. As a school we want to be a good neighbour.'
He added the school staff, who could not move cars on, encouraged pupils to walk or cycle.
