With reference to the impact of Gordano School on the surrounding locality.Like the residents of St Mary's Road, Wetlands Lane, Greenfield Park and Lipgate Place, the residents of Maysfield Close also have suffered degradation of their homes by excessive all-day parking by students attending the school in their cars.This is in addition to the school run each day.It has become, at best, extremely difficult for residents to exit their homes with their own cars and on several occasions, it has been impossible.There have been minor bumps and scrapes, and damage caused by having to slide the car off the edges of the kerb in the very narrow road which was constructed of a size only for access to the houses.It is not wide enough for a parking lane.Sadly, the school has become greatly overbearing on the whole locality and it is no longer the 'good neighbour' that it once was. The education authority is to blame for the problem for not providing adequate parking within the school perimeter, and is happy to dump the problem on the residents of all of the above mentioned areas. and with the major expansion of the school which is taking place, it will doubtless become much worse. Weekends offer no respite as the school hires out its neighbouring playing fields for football, car boot sales, etc.Name and address supplied
