Permits for teachers and parents

If you are:

  • a teacher working at an affected school, or
  • a parent of a child with special needs who needs to be driven to the school

then please ask the school to apply to us for a permit on your behalf. You don't need to ​contact us.

Permits for residents and carers

If you are:

  • a resident living an affected road, or
  • a carer of a resident living an affected road

then you can apply for a free permit to allow you to use the road.

We ask that, if possible, carers arrange their visits outside the restricted hours.

Apply for a school safety zone resident or carer permit

A permit applies to one specific vehicle. If you need a permit for more than one vehicle then you will need to make a separate application for each one.

Enforcement

During the restricted periods, we will carry out enforcement using cameras.
