Back in December 2014 I presented a petition to the full council of 277 parents, carers and staff of Darlinghurst Primary School, requesting that the Council enforced the school keep clear markings and provide a School Crossing Patrol Officer at Pavilion Drive.
This evening Traffic and Parking Committee met to consider the Council’s report into the petition.
The report recommended that no lollipop person was provided. I thought it was a forlorn hope.
However I am delighted to report that I managed to persuade members of the committee that there are exceptional circumstances and therefore a lollipop person will be funded by the council.
The children of Blenheim Park will be safer because of this decision. It took me over half an hour to persuade my colleagues to go against the officers’ recommendation, but – SUCCESS!!
