A PERMIT scheme has been launched as inconsiderate parents are causing parking angst around a Petersfield school.

Herne Junior School (HJS) has teamed up with East Hampshire District Council to provide parents with free parking permits at Festival Hall car park.

The move follows ongoing complaints about parents continually parking in front of driveways and garages along Love Lane and Hoadlands when collecting their children.

The school has urged the culprits “to be respectful to neighbours and make sure this stops” in a newsletter to parents.

Permits are available for parents/carers with children at Herne Juniors or for parents with children at both HJS and Petersfield Infants, see office staff at either school for details.
