Following a public consultation, the Marlborough School Street Scheme made permanent by Harrow Council in February this year, will not be reinstated.
School Streets were initially designed to reduce traffic and congestion around the school entrance for approximately an hour at the start and end of the school day.
The scheme was suspended in July as the Summer Holidays started with a ten week consultation held to determine its future.
A letter issued by Harrow Council to local residents said: “I am writing to you with the outcome of the consultation on the future of the Marlborough School Street Scheme and what happens now.
“The 10-week consultation closed on 9 October 2022, and we received 210 responses.
“Some two-thirds (66%) of respondents (139/210) said they lived within the school scheme, or on surrounding roads. 16% of respondents (34/210) said they had children at the school.
