School Streets Scheme: Wansdyke Primary School

Closes 31 Dec 2019

Opened 15 Nov 2019

Overview

The School Streets Scheme has been introduced by local authorities across the UK to remove motor vehicles from roads directly outside schools at school start and finish times. 

As part of this, Bristol City Council is carrying out early engagement on draft proposals to introduce a School Streets Zone on School Close, the road that links Rookery Way to Wansdyke Primary School, at school start and finish times. Vehicles would be prohibited from driving within School Close for 45 minutes in morning and 45 minutes in the afternoon, at school start and finish times. 

The aims of the proposed School Streets Scheme are to tackle congestion, unsafe parking and air pollution at the school gates and to make it safer and easier to walk, scoot and cycle to school. It could also reduce the impacts of school traffic for local residents.

The council has decided to start a pilot School Streets Scheme on 24 February 2020, which includes proposals to implement School Streets Zones outside Wansdyke Primary School and St Peter’s C of E Primary School. You can take part in early engagement for a School Streets Zone outside St Peter’s school by clicking here. You will be able to formally comment on or object to the pilot scheme during the six-month formal consultation period commencing in February 2020.
