Wardens to clamp down on ‘parking meanies’ who block Keighley schools

Council wardens plan a clampdown on ‘parking meanies’ who clog roads outside Keighley schools.

They could be given special overtime payments so they are able to visit schools before they start in the morning.

The aim is to catch parents who park inconsiderately or cause danger while dropping off their children.

Keighley Area Committee will tonight vote whether to provide £2,000 to fund the wardens’ overtime bill.

The money is part of a proposed £38,013 package of improvements to meet priorities in the committee’s Keighley Area Action Plan.

The package also includes £10,000 for environmental improvements in Keighley town centre, and £2,500 each for Silsden, Ilkley and Haworth centres.

A £2,000 boost for the Manorlands BigK 10k charity run would pay for extra warden duties, mobile escort, filming and clean-up costs.

Other funding includes £5,000 for debt counselling and money management advice for vulnerable people and loan shark victims; £5,000 to support self-help projects and social enterprises; £2,000 to gather the views of older, disabled, vulnerable or marginalised people and £4,513 contingency fund for emerging issues.

Hell, get them up Nessfield. I'll give them a pound for each one they nab myself. Some of these idle buggers who drive here must actually walk further from their parked car, than they would from their own front door.
