Healthy School Street ETMO objection forms:

Those affected by the school streets will have 6 months (23 January 2023 - 23 July 2023) to submit an objection.

In order to object to the experimental Healthy School Street scheme you are affected by, you must select and complete the relevant ETMO form objection form accessible from the list of links given at the bottom of this page. To view detailed information on each Healthy School Street scheme please click on the relevant leaflets located on the right of this page.

Background:

On 23 January 2023, the council will be launching 9 new Healthy School Street Schemes using an Experimental Traffic Management Order (ETMO) for a maximum period of 18 months. Croydon already has 24 Healthy School Street schemes in place the first of which was implemented in 2017. The council wishes to build on the success of these schemes and double the amount of Healthy School Streets in place by the end of 2023.

The first 6 months of this 18 month experimental period is known as the statutory objection period, during which anyone who is affected by the scheme(s) can submit formal objections if they wish. The purpose of a longer 6 month objection period is to allow the council, schools and others to experience the true effects of the scheme, while it is operated on the highway.

What are Healthy School Streets?

Healthy School Streets help pupils to have safer, healthier journeys to and from school, by restricting the roads outside the school during school drop-off and pick-up times. This will not affect residents' access – if you live in those roads, you will be able to apply for a free exemption permit.

For more information about permits/exemptions including applications please click: HERE

The scheme encourages parents and pupils to leave the car at home more often for the school run, and instead choose more sustainable and active means of travel, such as walking, cycling, or scooting. Healthy School Streets benefit residents by decreasing motor traffic in their neighbourhood during busy pick-up and drop-off hours – reducing congestion, noise and air pollution.

Benefits of Healthy School Streets:

  • Safer school journeys for pupils
  • Make it easier to choose sustainable travel like walking and cycling
  • Cleaner and less polluted streets
  • Improve our air quality
  • Encourage active travel, helping to promote healthy lifestyles

What happens next

Towards the end of the experimental period (18 months), the council will review all the objections received together with its own assessment on how the scheme has performed and will take a decision on whether the experimental schemes are to be removed or be made permanent.
