Camden are consulting on making permanent 5 trial Healthy School Streets schemes (consultation is required approximately 12 months after installation). The schemes and a brief comment are as follows (more details in the links to Camden’s pages). Hours of operation would remain as now expect for a slight change at Ecole Jeannine Manuel. We supported the first four but said that (a) we wanted the hours to be longer and (b) there should be no exemptions (to make the roads truly motor traffic free). We did not support the one at Ecole Jeannine Manuel without further measures to deal with traffic displacement. You can click on the links to access the details and consultation response pages on Camden’s website.
Kentish Town Primary (Islip Street) Extend to Kentish Town Road to prevent dropping off round Wolsey Mews etc. Extend pavement widening, add 2 cycle hangars.
Christopher Hatton Primary (Mount Pleasant) Add 2 cycle hangars
Brookfield Primary (Croftdown Road) Add 2 cycle hangars
Argyle Primary (Tonbridge Street) Add 2 cycle hangars
Ecole Jeannine Manuel (Bedford Square) Change times to 8-9, 4-5 (currently 8-9, 3-4:30)
We plan to re-iterate our support for these schemes with qualifications as before and will add any comments from members.
Decision to make these schemes permanent
