Penwortham Primary School Street

A School Street has been operating since 8 June 2020 along both Penwortham Road and Pretoria Road between Moyser Road and Welham Road.

Operating hours

Monday to Friday 8.15 to 9.30am and 2.45 to 3.45pm, term time only.

How it works

  • Signs notify drivers of the School Street operating times
  • Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras have been installed to enforce the School Street on both Penwortham Road and Pretoria Road. ANPR cameras have been in use on Penwortham Road since March 2021 and ANPR cameras will be in use on Pretoria Road from January 2022

During the operating times people walking, scooting, using wheelchairs, mobility scooters and cycles (including adapted cycles) are able to enter the School Street.

Motor vehicles are prohibited during the operating times, subject to a limited number of exemptions. More details about the exemption criteria and a form to apply can be found on the exemptions page.

Anyone entering the School Street during the operating times in a motor vehicle without having obtained an exemption will be liable to a penalty charge notice at the rate of £130 (subject to a 50% discount if payment is received within 14 days). For more information see PCN charges.
