Livingstone Road Infant and Junior Schools

A School Street is where the road outside a school is closed to motor vehicles for a short period (45-60 minutes) at the beginning and end of the school day. Parents and carers are asked to either walk, scoot or cycle with their children to school, or to park a little further away and walk the last few minutes of the journey.

School Streets have been very effective elsewhere, by:

  • Reducing road danger at the place where the most children and their families are likely to congregate;
  • Improving the air quality outside the school, protecting young lungs;
  • Encouraging physical activity into the children’s routine, which makes them healthier, happier, more energised and ready to learn.

Livingstone Road will be closed via a timed Traffic Order, displayed on signs at the entrance to the road. During the closure periods, stewards will be present to help enforce this, and to welcome families arriving at the School Street on foot, scooter or bicycle. Blue Badge holders will be allowed through in their cars if required.

The map below shows the location of the school street and useful parking and route information.

Pre-consultation with parents and carers as well as local residents and businesses took place between 18 November - 17 December 2021. The results showed strong support for the scheme. It was therefore decided to proceed with the trial.

The trial will run from 28 March to 28 September 2022. You can tell us your views on the changes and how they impact you by completing the online survey here or by emailing SSETROresponse@bcpcouncil.gov.uk. The survey will be available from the 28 March.
