Byron Court Primary School Travel Scheme

Closes 6 Mar 2020

Opened 11 Feb 2020

Overview

We are proposing to introduce a School Streets scheme around the Byron Court Primary School. School Streets involve temporarily prohibiting access to one or more roads surrounding a school to most vehicles at the start and end of the school day. Residents on a School Street will be entitled to apply for a permit (free of charge) to access their properties.

Why We Are Consulting

As part of our sustainable transport policy, we are  progressively improving key walking routes to schools and making them safer for all road users; particularly for vulnerable road users such as children. As a part of the expansion of the Byron Court Primary School, a road safety scheme was introduced in roads surrounding the school in 2018. A car parking facility was also provided for parents to drop off their children in the Northwick Park pavilion car park.

Since this scheme was introduced however, we have continued to receive regular complaints regarding vehicles disobeying the waiting and loading restrictions and obstructing of the access to service providers and residents. The Council have also received a petition with 232 verified signatures asking for a School Streets scheme to be considered in the roads immediately surrounding Byron Court Primary School.
