There will be a chance to see plans for a zebra crossing outside St Anne’s School on Harrowby Road, Grantham, on Saturday (November 30).

The plans will be available to see in St Anne’s Church on Harrowby Road, from 3pm to 8pm.

District and County Councillor Charmaine Morgan will be there to discuss any concerns with members of the public.

There will also be a chance to discuss the plans with Lincolnshire County Council Highways officers and local councillors on Wednesday, December 4, between 3pm and 5pm at St Anne’s School.

Coun Morgan said: “There have been a number of attempts by Lincolnshire County Council Highways Officers to improve the safety of children and parents crossing Harrowby Road near St Anne’s School. The previous proposals, which would have resulted in a significant loss of parking space, were rejected by the majority of local residents and a number of parents concerned at the loss of pick up and drop off parking space. Other concerns raised included the use of Harrowby Road by HGVs, poor visibility in the area near St Anne’s School, and speeding vehicles.

“In order to progress the original request LCC Highways Officers are proposing an alternative School Safety Crossing which will be a basic zebra crossing design i.e. without the associated extended zig-zag lines and reduced speed limit. Highways Officers are offering an opportunity to Preview these proposals with a plan to go to full Public Consultation, lasting one month, shortly.”
