3PR is a school-led initiative offered across the North and South Essex Parking Partnership Areas to primary schools.
The Initiative engages and educates pupils with the use of incentives and other means to change and influence parking behaviours of the parents or guardians.
The 3 Parking Rules
3PR stands for 3 Parking Rules. These three rules are:
- Care – Be careful where you park – Don’t cause an obstruction – Use a car park if available
- Consideration – Respect the school’s parking policy – Always consider the neighbours – Don’t block driveways – Be polite and courteous – If possible, walk, scoot or cycle instead
- Caution – Look out for other children, not just your own – Always observe the speed limits – Stay off the pavement – Don’t park on yellow zigzags or markings – Avoid parking on a bend
There are many objectives for the scheme but the most prominent include:
Educating pupils and in turn their parents or guardians about the dangers of bad parking habits, and what they can do to change.
To provide a manageable parking initiative for all schools across the North and South Parking Partnerships free of charge.
Preventing inconsiderate, illegal and dangerous parking around schools.
Interested in learning more about 3PR?
3PR has a dedicated website where you can find case studies, a contact form and much more. For more information please follow the link below.
Due to available funding and the existence of other school travel schemes within Essex, the 3PR scheme is currently on hold. We have therefore suspended the launch of any new schemes across the whole of North Essex until further notice. We will be in contact with all schools who have registered their interest in the scheme once we have more information on the future of 3PR. We appreciate your patience during this time.
Existing 3PR schools
If your school is already part of the 3PR scheme, we will continue to be available to provide assistance and support with the scheme where possible. Please get in contact with us through the usual channels with any questions or concerns you may have.
