School Streets for September

28th July 2020 / Posted by Fiona Coull

With the summer holidays now in full swing, there is a brilliant opportunity to start implementing School Streets in time for schools reopening in September. The Hackney School Streets Hotline provided by CRP’s Healthy Streets Everyday (HSE) project 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 extended to the 28th of September, is also now available to ALL London Boroughs and provides 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. As the service continues to be well used, we encourage booking a 30 minute time slot in advance of the hotline’s weekly Monday operating hours to avoid disappointment.

As schools reopen, School Streets will play an important role in enabling social distancing at drop off and pick up times by creating more space outside of schools. The Hotline Service can help HSE Partners and other London Boroughs to quickly implement School Streets that facilitate social distancing, support travel to school by walking, cycling or scooting, and that are in line with TfL’s Streetspace programme. CRP and its partners are extremely grateful to the Mayor’s Air Quality Fund for making this Schools Streets Hotline Extension possible.

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