PARENTAL frustration at Kiama Public School is set to be curbed with new 'kiss and drop' spaces being introduced on Bong Bong Street.
Kiama Municipal Council acting general manager Bryan Whittaker said the bus zone would be moved further east to make way for a no-parking zone outside the gate.
It would be big enough for four to five cars to stop briefly to let students out and pick them up.
"During morning and afternoon school zone hours, you'll be able to drop your child off and watch them walk straight to the gate from a very close spot," he said.
Kiama Mayor Brian Petschler said the 'kiss and drop' spaces on Collins Street would then revert back to general parking, to compensate for the loss of parking on Bong Bong Street.
"It's still a compromise - if you want to put a school somewhere, that's one of the worst spots in town you could put it with a hill like that," he said.
But P&C president Amanda Koorey said she was "stoked" with the outcome.
She hoped the measures would improve traffic flow outside the school's main entrance, where parents have been known to stop in driveways or double-park in order to drop off their children, due to the steep slopes on Collins and Thomson streets and a lack of parking.
"It's been on the agenda for such a long time, ever since I've been here. . . I'm stoked," she said.
"More traffic will be able to come through, with less frustration for parents, and it'll be much safer."
Councillors approved the changes at last week's business meeting.
