Living near schools

Schools are an important part of our community, but, for local residents, they can sometimes present issues, particularly at school drop off and pick up times.

While schools are naturally busy places, this doesn't mean that steps can't be taken to reduce the impact on those living in surrounding streets.

There are many things a school can do to help reduce congestion and improve air quality around schools. Find out more about School Travel Planning, and how, as a member of the local community, you can get involved.

Nottinghamshire County Council receive many requests to implement parking restrictions around schools to manage traffic. Find out more about parking restrictions and their effectiveness.

PLEASE CONSIDER: the first priority of Nottinghamshire County Council and every school is getting children safely to and from school.

Due to the nature of schools, they can only do so much to manage travel to and from their sites.
