Clean Air Zone - SS Peter & Paul’s Catholic Primary and Gordon Primary Schools

Closed 15 Jul 2019

Opened 3 Jun 2019

Overview

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 SS Peter & Paul’s Catholic Primary School and Gordon Primary school.

The two schools have been chosen as one of the trial sites due to their close proximity to each other, so benefitting a greater number of children.

The Proposal

The proposal is that during term time, non-residential vehicular traffic - cars, vans and lorries, will be prohibited from driving along certain roads in the vicinity of the two schools at school start and finish times.

The affected roads are;

  • Gordon Road, between the junctions with Green Lane and Golfe Road (west);
  • Golfe Road (east), between the junctions with Gordon Road and South Park Road;
  • Winchester Road, between the junctions with Park Road and Gordon Road;
  • Littlemoor Road, between the junctions with Cavenham Gardens and Golfe Road (east).

These roads are shown in red on map below.

The prohibition is proposed for Gordon Road and Golfe Road (east) as the entrances to the schools are located on these roads.

The prohibition is proposed on short stretches of Winchester Road and Littlemoor Road to avoid vehicles parking and manoeuvring in these areas whilst children are walking and cycling to school.

The proposed times of the prohibition are between;

  • 08:30 and 09:15 in the morning
  • 14:45 and 15:45 in the afternoon

These times have been proposed after discussions with the schools.

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.
