School streets (school safety zones)

A school street is a street near a school with restricted access to vehicles at drop-off and pick-up times. The restricted area is also called a school safety zone.

You may be able to apply for a school safety zone permit to allow you to use the street during these times.

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

We recently expanded our school streets programme. The new school streets are included in the list below. See Introducing New School Streets for more information on the expansion
