Parking restrictions outside a school could be extended in an effort to make the area safer for pupils.
There have been long-standing concerns over inconsiderate parking and poor visibility for pupils entering and leaving St Fergus Primary near Peterhead.
Now the existing “School Keep Clear” markings outside the school will be expanded on both sides of the village’s School Road.
New parking and waiting restrictions will also be introduced along nearby Langley Road, with double yellow lines to be painted at its junction with School Road.
The council has decided to act after “various safety concerns” were raised over parking around the 117-pupil school and in a bid to improve visibility for children.
A report by Aberdeenshire Council’s infrastructure boss Stephen Archer said it was aiming to stop vehicles from parking at crossing areas.
The council intends to undertake a four-week statutory consultation with interested parties including the AA, Road Haulage Association and others.
Councillors on the Buchan area committee will be asked to approve the new restrictions on Tuesday.
