How does it affect me?
We have worked to ensure School Streets has a positive impact on local residents, parents and commuters.
Walking to School: “You get lots of exercise and plenty of fresh air. It also means you do not pollute the air with fumes. It also makes you happy!" - Juliet
Parents and carers
A number of streets outside of the three selected schools are restricted to certain traffic during times at the beginning and end of the school day.
This creates a safer environment for those who walk and cycle and encourages more parents and carers of children to leave their cars at home and walk to school.
If you still need to drive to school we ask that you park a short distance away and walk the rest of your journey. Our Park and Stride scheme can help you plan your journey.
Gateway signs are located at the entrance of all affected streets, further information on how the restriction will be enforced can be found here.
If you are a resident in one of the streets closed to traffic you need to display a valid permit to allow you to drive in the zones between the times that the restriction is in force.
Further details on the restriction and times they apply can be found here.
Please note that permits will only be issued to residents living within the zones directly affected by the restriction.
Information for Blue Badge holders
Blue badge holders residing at or visiting properties within the restricted roads will be exempt from the School Streets restrictions.
