School Streets

Lambeth Council has introduced timed closures on streets around schools in the borough to make the journey to school safer for pupils.

School Streets restrict vehicle access to streets around schools in the borough during school drop-off and pick-up times.

School Streets operate during the school term during school term dates.  Some of the schemes are enforced by Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras.

Please note that the restrictions will continue to apply on inset days, strike days or any other irregular days within the school term time. 

The schemes aim to create safer and more pleasant environments outside of schools by prioritising pedestrians and cyclists and encouraging walking, cycling and scooting to school.

School Streets aim to:

  • reduce road danger at the school gates
  • tackle congestion
  • improve air quality
  • increase active travel to school
