A consultation is being held on a proposal to introduce access restrictions around Gunnersbury Catholic School during drop-off and pick-up times.

Following discussions with the school and local councillors, the council is planning to implement a School Streets scheme.

Access restrictions will cover the whole length of The Ride and Clitherow Road, and will operate between Monday-Friday, 8.15 – 9.15am and 2.45 – 3.45pm, during school term time with exemptions for those who live within the zone, visitors to residents, those with disabilities with a blue badge, easily recognisable delivery vehicles (e.g. supermarket lorries), and school staff.

To compliment the school street restriction, and prevent obstructive parking on the neighbouring main road, A3002 Boston Manor Road, it is also proposed to introduce red route restrictions. Double red line No Stopping “At Any Time” restrictions would be implemented at the junction of Boston Manor Road and The Ride, and opposite this junction between the bus stop and the crossing.

Red Route controls place strict limitations on parking, preventing not only waiting and loading, but stopping also. They can be enforced by CCTV, unlike most other parking restrictions such as yellow lines.

Both the school street and red route restrictions will be enforced by the council through the use of CCTV, which could be either mobile or fixed cameras.

The council says it is making the proposals as part of its promotion active travel in the hope that they will encourage children to walk and cycle to school, reduce pollution and improve safety outside the school.

Feedback on the scheme can be provide online and needs to be submitted by 11 December.
