The safety of children crossing the road to school in Claverham has been raised as a concern.
Cars parking legally, but causing safety issues, and the lack of a safe crossing were raised at Yatton Parish Council's meeting on November 11.
Many parents dropping children off at Court de Wyck Primary School park at the village hall opposite and cross the road.
But, there is no crossing and the number of children being required to cross the 30mph Bishops Road will increase once a 77-home development at the former ATC Aerospace site is complete.
North Somerset councillor Steve Bridger said the police are concerned about safety and the potential for installing a crossing will be explored by the council.

Yatton parish councillor Jill Iles said a crossing is 'essential'.
Cllr Bridger also said double yellow lines may be needed on parts of Bishops Road because drivers parking on the bend near High Street force buses to overtake at a point where oncoming motorists cannot see them.
