Islington Council is planning to introduce a School Street Scheme to improve air quality around Hugh Myddelton Primary School and create a safer, more pleasant environment for everyone. The Council would like to hear your thoughts on the proposal.
What is proposed for Garnault Place, Myddelton Street, Gloucester Way, Whiskin Street and Meredith Street? The proposal is to trial a temporary road closure on Garnault Place, Myddelton Street, Gloucester Way, Whiskin Street and Meredith Street, between 8.20am-9.15am and 3.00pm-3.45pm 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 streets. Non-registered vehicles entering the street during the times of operation may be identified by camera and issued a penalty charge notice.
