    Parliament's powerful all-party Public AccountsCommittee (PAC), has accused the government of failing to plan for job losses, school closures and thefailure to obtain PPE equipment to protect front line staff.

    And with children set to return to schools right across Lancashire in September, they are all reviewingtheir risk assessments as they consider the guidance around COVID -19.

    Preparation is important notonly to reduce the risks but to give confidence to their parents and guardians that their children will besafe.

    Prior to the Covid crisis there was growing conflict around inappropriate parking by parents with eachother, local communities and the schools, especially at arriving and going home times.

    Ormskirk County Councillor John Fillis, Deputy Leader, Lancashire Labour Group, said: “This damning government report of itsfailure to plan ahead is no surprise to anyone.

    "Its findings are being replicated by Lancashire’s Tory administration that's failing to consult with local communities and councillorsregarding home to school travel arrangements.

    ”Our schools have and will continue to do a fantastic job in supporting the education of children as safelyas possible, but with the changing requirements from home to school travel we will see staged starttimes, reduction in regular bus availability as well as some dedicated services failing to operate.

    "This will see the number of children arriving by private car increase dramatically. We already had conflicts across Lancashire between parents inconsiderate parking around schools andlocal communities before the COVID crisis. Schools cannot deal with this directly it’s the responsibility ofthe county council to step up and step in to bring people together.

    "We know there has been a problemand there will be a problem. Lancashire has published guidance and introduced fines but the problemshave persisted as there is no one on the ground to organise practical steps or issue the fines.

    "We would be happy to work with the current administration to establish a task force as part of the Covidcommunity hub structure to support each school, their local community and councillors to preventconflict through bespoke strategies that would encourage safe traffic flows around schools.

    "Manyschools and local residents are already working together what we need is a council prepared to look tothe future and not just respond to problems but prevent them from happening.

    "We have seen atremendous community spirit grow across Lancashire! Let's enhance it and build a better future.”
