North East Lincolnshire Council and its delivery partner, Equans, are installing two new CCTV enforcement cameras at Queen Mary Infant and Nursery School in Cleethorpes and Welhome Academy in Grimsby. The cameras will go live on Friday 9 June.
These CCTV cameras have been a success at Signhills and Old Clee with 152 Penalty Charge Notices (PCNs) being issued since the installation last year. These cameras automatically detect and enforce parking contraventions on the keep clear markings which will help deter dangerous parking and reduce accidents.
Drivers caught stopping on the yellow zig zag lines will receive a £70 PCN in the post, discounted to £35 if paid within 14 days.
Lynne Bromley, parking manager at Equans, said “Signhills and Old Clee have demonstrated the effectiveness of these cameras as less people are parking dangerously outside schools. We hope these two new cameras will have the same effect at Queen Mary School and Welholme Academy.”
Councillor Stewart Swinburn, portfolio holder for environment and transport, said: “Children’s safety is paramount, more so around schools where dangerous parking threatens this safety during busy school times. These cameras are here to help children enter and leave school safely without the worry of vehicles being parked dangerously. We hope these two new cameras will create a safer environment for the children.”
