Worries over dangerous parking outside a school in Newark are being looked into by a councillor.

Johno Lee, district councillor for Balderton, said he had been approached by teachers and parents of the new Christ Church Church of England Primary School in Middlebeck.

Mr Lee, highlighting the concerns on his Facebook page, said double yellow lines had now been requested for outside the school on Bowbridge Lane.

"Double yellow lines have been requested for outside the school on the main road," he said. "The entire length [of the road] these will be double yellow lines with chevrons that will mean no stopping at any time."

Mr Lee said this would be enforced by a traffic warden, the same as other schools in Balderton and Coddington.

He added: “Leaving your hazard lights on does not mean you can leave your car where you drop off your children.

"I am aware of this issue and I’m looking at getting it resolved as soon as possible."

Responding to the Facebook post, one person said: "Pleased someone has raised the issue. As I was walking along that piece of road at Middlebeck a car parked and put hazard lights on, an accident waiting to happen especially because at that point the road is single carriageway."

Mr Lee said he had also hand delivered letters to the headteacher's in his division asking them to get in contact about any highways or parking issues.
