School Streets

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

How does School Streets work?

School Streets introduces temporary restricted vehicle access to the streets around school gates, creating pedestrian and cycle zones during drop off and pick up times. These zones are supported by signage at each entry and closure point, informing drivers of the timed restrictions in place.

Vehicle access is restricted by way of additional enforcement, including physical barriers and/or Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras. During the times of operation, vehicles are not able to access the School Street zone without a granted exemption. Penalty Charge Notices (PCN) may be issued to vehicles entering the zones without an exemption.
