School Streets Initiatives

The request was successful.

Dear Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead,

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,

Response

a) RBWM do not currently have any designated school streets in the
Borough.

b) To date, no expenditure has been incurred on School Streets by RBWM.

c) As part of the RBWM bid for funding under the Emergency Active Travel
scheme, the council put forward a combination of 5 cycling and pedestrian
options for consideration to a value of £761k. These included the possible
introduction of school streets in up to 7 locations within the borough.
The allocations have now been made by central government and RBWM has been
awarded £335k and will shortly be consulting the public on which of the
schemes to take forward as per guidance issued.
