School Streets

These are streets where new access restrictions have been introduced as part of the national School Streets Initiative. It is a community-based approach that aims to:

  • Reduce car usage and air pollution;
  • promote walking and cycling;
  • and boost road safety, health and well-being.

All schemes that are introduced have the support of the school and local councillors. They have proved popular and effective elsewhere, as well as in our trial with Calderdale schools in June 2020. For more about this, read our blog, visit: Safer, Greener and More Active: Calderdale School Streets Trial.
