Have a listen to our first HSE Podcast: How the Hackney School Streets Hotline has helped to Implement School Streets!

21st September 2020 / Posted by Fiona Coull

The Healthy Streets Everyday (HSE) Programme is pleased to release our very first podcast! Have a listen to Joseph Lindsay from Lambeth Council talking to CRP’s Fiona Coull about his experiences of using the Hackney School Streets Hotline! Listen here

The hotline service has actively helped several Local Authorities with the implementation of school streets, including Haringey, Bromley, RichmondBrent and Lambeth. As the service enters its final few weeks of operation, we encourage booking a 30 minute time slot in advance of the hotline’s weekly Monday operating hours to avoid disappointment. CRP and its partners are extremely grateful to the Mayor’s Air Quality Fund for making this Schools Streets Hotline possible.

The Hackney School Streets Hotline is a free telephone service aimed at helping HSE Partners and London Boroughs to design and implement successful School Streets. The hotline service, which has been available from the 6th of April to the 28th of September 2020, was also made available to ALL London Boroughs in July, helping to provide tailored one-to-one support as well as up-to-the-minute, site specific advice from The London Borough of Hackney – a HSE partner who has years of direct ‘on the ground’ experience in implementing School Streets.

For further information about the service, including how to book a session, please contact HSE Project Manager Fiona Coull.
