Noel Road (from Danbury Street to St Peter’s Street) - School Street Scheme
Hanover Primary School
Islington Council is planning to introduce a School Street Scheme to improve air quality around Hanover
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 Noel Road?
The proposal is to trial a temporary road closure on Noel Road (from Danbury Street to St Peter’s
Street) between 8.30am to 9.15am plus 3.15pm 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
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.
Hanover Primary School is being looked at as part of the wider School Street Scheme Programme
across the borough. An 18 month trial is proposed. The Council will be working with the school and local
community to develop the scheme.
