What is a school street?
School streets are, in their simplest form, timed closures to motor traffic outside schools - usually during pick up and drop off times. The School Street Scheme has been run successfully in a number of other areas in London and across the UK. The results from these schemes show a positive improvement to the neighbourhoods they are run in, with an increase in sustainable travel to and from school, reduction of poor parking and improvement in air quality.

Chessington trial
We have been running a trial scheme on Mansfield Road in Chessington, which leads to Lovelace Primary School.

We are running this scheme in direct response to issues raised by residents and councillors. This will be reviewed on its successes and a decision will be made on whether to make permanent in 2021.

School Streets in Kingston

The schemes are being trialled through Experimental Traffic Management Orders (ETMO) which allows councils to run consultation alongside the trial periods. We are using Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras to monitor the schemes and so residents within the schemes will need to register their vehicles with us.

The school street schemes are not feasible for every school location and so, it is important to note that these schemes are runs as trials. We work with schools to ensure that they are doing as much as they can to encourage sustainable travel to and from school through school travel planning.

Please see our frequently asked questions (FAQ's) for more information on school streets. For more specific FAQ's please go to individual scheme pages below.
