School Streets Scheme

HACKNEY SCHOOL STREETS

Gayhurst Community School has been selected for the  School Streets scheme.  This is an initiative by Hackney Council to  tackle congestion at the school gates and improve the environment for walking and cycling to school.

From Monday 29th January  2018 London Fields West Side and Gayhurst Road between Appleby Rd and London Fields West Side will become a pedestrian and cycle only zone

Monday – Friday during term time at these times:

8.30am – 9.15am
3.15pm – 4pm

How does it work?

 London Fields West Side and Gayhurst Road between Appleby Rd and London Fields West Side will be made a pedestrian and cyclist only zone from 8.30am - 9.15am and 3.15pm – 4pm on school days only

A pair of signs will be erected at the entrances to the zone warning drivers of restrictions ahead

 Access for residents and businesses will be maintained if they have registered their vehicle for an exemption

 Zone residents with vehicles in possession of a Zone J parking permit will be automatically registered; any other resident/business needs to apply for an exemption.

Special exemptions will also be granted to any blue badge holder and others, such as carers and medical staff

 Other vehicles driven by visitors, parents, delivery vehicles, Zone J permit holders living outside the school streets zone and school staff will not be permitted to enter the zone during the closure

 The zone is enforced by camera; non-registered vehicles entering the zone will be automatically issued a penalty charge notice.

All vehicles already within the zone during the operational times will be able to exit
