School Streets Initiatives

The request was successful.

Dear Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea,

Please could you tell me:
a) How many School Streets there are currently in your local authority area?
b) How much has been spent on School Streets initiatives in the last three financial years?
c) How many school streets are currently in planning phase (for example, plans have been drawn up or budget has been bid for, for example, via the DfT's Emergency Active Travel Fund)?

For the avoidance of doubt, a School Street is a road outside a school with a temporary restriction on motorised traffic at school drop-off and pick-up times. The restriction applies to school traffic and through traffic. Local authorities have powers to use traffic management orders to turn a road outside a school into a pedestrian and cycle zone.

Yours faithfully,
