The scheme prevents vehicles from using designated sections of carriageway in the immediate vicinity of schools during the start and end of the school day. 

The latest proposals have been drawn up for two primary schools – All Saints in Putney and Battersea’s Belleville at its Meteor Street site. 

At All Saints the plans would involve vehicles not being permitted to access the road space outside the school gates at Putney Common between 8.15am and 9am and from 3pm to 3.45pm during term time.

At Belleville’s Meteor site, there are two sets of alternative proposals.

The first would involve the closure of Meteor Street along its entire length between Tregarvon Road and Marmion Road.

The second alternative plan would involve the closure of Meteor Street as outlined above, but with an additional closure of Forthbridge Road between Marmion Road and Clapham Common North Side.
In both scenarios, if the plans are approved, vehicles would not be permitted to access the School Street on term time weekdays between 8.20am and 9.10am and also from 3pm to 3.40pm.

The council’s Executive Director of Environment and Community Services Paul Chadwick said: “There are many benefits of Schools Streets including keeping the area outside the school gates free of congestion, reducing idling vehicles and improving air quality, encouraging active travel to school, creating a pleasant and calm atmosphere at the start and end of the school day and, of course, improving road safety.”
