Are there parking issues at Busby Primary School?

Concerns have been raised over parking issues in Busby.

Resident Mr Walker has concerns over the influx of cars in and around Busby Primary Schhol and nursery.

He has called on East Renfrewshire Council to help parents and carers plan the school drop off, if they are bringing a car with them to the school.

His suggestions include asking staff, parents and contractors to leave their cars at home, or park away from the school area and make use of public transport.

His more radical ideas such the council subsidising bus tickets, creating a drop off zone at Williamwood High School with pupils then being ferried by mini bus to Busby School, and making the area around Busby Primary a no go zone for cars would not be feasible.

Mr Walker has also asked for an information sheet, in conjunction with Busby school, be available so that people coming to the area know where to park.

An East Renfrewshire Council spokesman said: “Safety of pupils when travelling to school is an absolute priority and we continue to promote a range of initiatives to encourage families to leave their cars at home.

“If parents are bringing their child by car, it is important that drivers remember parking restrictions are in place around schools to help ensure a safe environment for children, and to allow other road users freedom of movement.

“We regularly remind parents and carers to park appropriately and observe the restrictions which are in place.”
