How can I freeze a parent folder so the hierarchy will not be changed

I would like to be able to stop people from moving the pages around. We have a structure which should be followed, so is there a way for parent pages not to be moved by everyone. I would like people to be able to fill them and to upload files in them, just not to change the hierarchy of the pages.

Thank you very much Davin.

You can actually use RESTRICTION option in space and also MOVE permission and also the Move page permission can be be customized .

Please let me know if I missed something. :)

I would like to stop people from reordering pages :)
