Clean Air Zone - Fairlop Primary School

Closed 15 Jul 2019

Opened 3 Jun 2019


Redbridge Council is proposing to trial two School Clean Air Zones in the Borough as part of its plans for a Greener Redbridge. This is to tackle dangerous levels of poisonous air pollution around our schools to help protect children attending Fairlop Primary school.

The Proposal

The proposal is that during term time, non-residential vehicular traffic - cars, vans and lorries, will be prohibited from driving along Colvin Gardens between the junction with Greenwood Gardens and its junction with Tomswood Hill at school start and finish times.

These affected stretch of Colvin Gardens is shown on the map below.

The prohibition is proposed for this stretch of Colvin Gardens as the entrance to the school is located on these roads.

The proposed times of the prohibition are between;

  • 08:45 and 09:20 in the morning
  • 15:00 and 15:50 in the afternoon

These times have been proposed after discussions with the school.

The prohibition will be indicated by signage at the relevant junctions and will be enforced by automatic number plate recognition camera (ANPR). A Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) will be issued to the owner of any vehicle that breaks the prohibition. The fee for a Moving Traffic Contravention is £130, for which there is a 50% discount if it is paid within 14 days.

Residents living in the roads covered by the prohibition will be able to apply for an exemption from the prohibition by notifying the Council of their vehicle details.

Why We Are Consulting

The Council will be pleased to hear your views on the proposals. Please complete the online questionnaire with any comments that you may have with regards to the proposal.

The London Ambulance Service, London Fire Brigade and Metropolitan Police Service are also being consulted on these proposals.

This consultation will be taking place for six weeks due to the need for the zones to be in place for the beginning of the new school year in September 2019.

What Happens Next

All the feedback that we receive will be analysed and considered carefully. Where possible we will use suggestions to improve on the proposals. The Cabinet Member for Civic Pride will consider the consultation results and the outcome will be publicised.
