We are aware that from time to time schools may experience difficulties with anti-social and illegal parking. We have a range of self-supporting resources which you can use as a school to help deal with these issues.

Parking enforcement for school parking problems

Civil Enforcement Officers attend schools where we have received reports of illegal parking.

To request Civil Enforcement Officers to attend a school please email


Civil Enforcement Officers can, and do, issue instant Penalty Charge Notices (PCNs) to drivers stopping on the parking restrictions outside schools.This means that the car registration details are logged together with photographic evidence, and the vehicle is either issued a PCN there or the registered keeper receives a PCN through the post.

General parking problems can be reported on the Report a parking problem webpage

You can also report anti-social driving to Sussex Police on their non-emergency number 101 or use Operation Crackdown .

Quick and easy ideas


We have a range of banners (PDF 432KB) available for schools to borrow, to help you address issues such as parking on School Keep Clears and inconsiderate parking.


We have 'Park Safely Park Legally'  (PDF 830KB) and 'School Keep Clear' (PDF 377KB) A5 postcards available to order. You can give these out to parents & carers, add them to newsletters, or upload them onto your school website. You could also print them out yourself.

If you would like to order copies of the postcards, please email transport.projects@brighton-hove.gov.uk and let us know which one(s) you are interested in and how many copies you would like.

'A-board' signs

'A-board' signs are being used by a number of schools around the city. They help prevent anti-social parking near schools, and remind drivers to park safely and legally. Please see our 'A-board information for schools sheet' (PDF 160KB) for further details.

Parking restrictions - information to give parents & carers

We have a leaflet called ‘Park well, stay safe’ (PDF 3MB) for parents and carers which is a guide to safe, legal and considerate parking and drop off near schools. This is a free resource available to order via the email address below. 

The following information on parking restrictions (PDF 88KB) may be useful for copying and pasting into your school newsletters/letters to parents etc, or webpages can be linked via social media.

Longer term ideas - changing parking behaviour

If you would like ideas about what you can do to help change parking behaviour, please see our Park safe, Walk safe webpage, which has lots of ideas and downloadable resources. These include a template 'Travel to school pledge' for parents & carers, ideas on promoting 'Park & Stride', and downloadable resources to run a 'Park safe, Walk safe campaign' at your school.
