Officers have been patrolling close to Harnham Infants and Juniors to make sure drivers are following the rules.

Parking and traffic has been a serious issue around the schools for a number of years, with parents asked to adhere to the local Traffic Regulation Order.

That states, for example, that only permit holders can park in Hollows Close during the morning and afternoon school runs.

The order's in force between 7.30 and 9.30am, as well as 2.00 and 6.00pm.

Harnham Schools Parking November 2018

Salisbury PSCO Simon Ward has been patrolling the area yesterday morning (Wednesday November 14th).

Police have reported that some local residents came out to thank the team for taking action.

They've also said they'll continue to work with the schools locally to improve road safety at peak times.

People using the Harnham schools have been given some advice too:

"If you need to drive/park close to school, please take that extra few minutes to make sure that you park safely, sensibly and legally during the busy school run period."
