Proposed Changes to Parking Restrictions Outside & Near To Saxmundham Primary School



Suffolk County Council Highways Department is proposing to implement some new parking restrictions in Brook Farm Road. This is in response to concerns raised due to problems caused by parking on both sides of the road outside Saxmundham Primary School. These have restricted movements of the school bus service, county bus services and other large vehicles, especially during operational opening and closing hours of the school.

It is proposed that a Traffic Regulation Order for a ‘no waiting at any time’ (double yellow lines) be implemented along the South carriageway of Brook Farm Road between houses No.60 and No.36. Restrictions would also extend into Ashfords Close on both sides, terminating immediately North of the existing dropped kerbs. The only exemption made in the proposed Traffic Regulation Order would be for buses at the bus stops.

These proposals would facilitate a clear two-way traffic flow passing outside the school and allowing buses and emergency vehicles to pass unrestricted at all times.

Comments and/or queries can be made in writing to Suffolk Highways, Phoenix House, 3 Goddard Road, Ipswich IP1 5NP. Telephone: 0845 6066171, or by email to:

The closing date for comments is 25th April 2014.
