PARKING ON OPEN EVENING – MONDAY 16th SEPTEMBER 2013

Parking in the roads near to Harris City Academy Crystal Palace will be impossible because of the very large number of visitors and a Traffic Management Order is in place. This will mean that there will be a one way system in the roads surrounding the Academy, on Mowbray Road, Maberley Road (in front of the Academy) and Sylvan Road.  In addition parking restrictions are in place. 

The car park at Harris City Academy Crystal Palace will be closed. Residents will have parked on both sides of the street and consequently parking will be unavailable.
