PARENTS fear proposed parking restrictions could cause chaos at a Colchester primary school.

A residents’ parking scheme on Constantine Road could be extended to run from 8am to 6pm on weekdays.

The restrictions, which would also apply to other nearby streets, are being looked at by Colchester Council as part of a review of schemes across the town.

But there are fears the changes will leave parents nowhere to pull over when dropping off and picking up children from Hamilton Primary School, which is also on the road.

To comment on the proposals e-mail or write to Colchester Residents' Parking Review, North Essex Parking Partnership, PO Box 5575, Town Hall, Colchester, CO1 9LT by Monday February 17.
