Gorslas community councillors have called for PCSOs to attend a village school to tackle traffic problems following the loss of the crossing patrol guard.

Councillors were disappointed to learn at the end of 2013 that the guard intended to leave the position and would not be replaced due to crossing not meeting strict criteria laid down by the National Assembly.

Following the guards departure, councillors have received numerous calls from concerned parents regarding traffic at the school at opening and closing time.

“Many people have mentioned the ‘considerable problem’ of parents parking on the pavements to drop of their children or while waiting for them to leave school at the end of the day,” said Councillor Terry Davies.

Cllr Ellis Davies called on the council to urge PCSOs to attend the school in the mornings and afternoons.

“It is has obviously become a problem since the school lost its crossing guard so surely we should be able to use the PCSOs to help,” he said.
