School Streets

The council has introduced timed closures on streets around schools in the borough to make the journey to school safer for pupils.

School Streets is a scheme set up by the council to restrict vehicle access to streets around schools in the borough during pick up and drop off times. This will help to:

  • reduce road danger
  • tackle congestion
  • improve air quality
  • facilitate walking, scooting and cycling

School Streets will create safer and more pleasant environments outside of schools as well as create space to aid social distancing while COVID-19 guidelines remain in place.
