A council is considering putting in double yellow lines to alleviate problems at a busy junction.

Kent County Council (KCC) will consult residents about proposals for the restrictions at the Almond Road junction with St John's Road, in Dartford, after concerns were raised over parking.

Some drivers have reportedly caused issues by parking in un-safe locations while picking up and dropping off children who attend The Brent School in London Road.

A pilot study was launched by Dartford council's Joint Transportation Board late last year to gain feedback from people who lived in St John's Road as to how they thought the problems could be solved.

Ward councillors sent out 98 letters to homes and businesses – but only six people responded.

As a result, KCC - which is responsible for highways - will consult with the affected residents in the coming months about plans to add double yellow lines at the junction.

Due to the lack of response to the survey, no further investigations into parking issues will take place in St John's Road.

However, a further investigation will look at the possibility of time-limited drop-off points at The Brent School, which may help to alleviate pressure.

Members are now discussing plans to launch the next parking-pilot study in Bow Arrow Lane.
