Moreland Street, Pickard Street and Gard Street - School Street Scheme Moreland Primary School
Islington Council is planning to introduce a School Street Scheme to improve air quality around Moreland Primary School and create a safer, more pleasant environment for everyone. The Council would like to hear your thoughts on the proposal.
What is a School Street Scheme?
A School Street Scheme is where a road with a school temporarily closes to become a pedestrian and cycle zone during the school’s opening and closing times. By temporarily closing roads outside schools this will help to reduce congestion and pollution at the school gates as well as make it easier and safer for children to get to and from school.
What is proposed for Moreland Street, Pickard Street and Gard Street?
The proposal is to trial a temporary road closure on Moreland Street, Pickard Street and Gard Street between 8.30am to 9.15am plus 3.00pm to 4.00pm during school term time.
Vehicles will not be able to enter the streets between these times unless they have been given an exemption. Residents and businesses who live and work on a school street will be able to register for an exemption as well as Blue Badge holders. The scheme will not operate in the school holidays or at weekends.
Signs will inform drivers of the restrictions before the entrance to the closed street. Non-registered vehicles entering the street during the times of operation may be identified by camera and issued a penalty charge notice.
