School street concerns


School streets have been rolled out this term, but concerns are mounting about how sustainable the council's approach is.

Volunteers are currently needed to be present whilst the school streets are in operation. Local branch of the national charity Living Streets has recently put out a call seeking more help as the support from parents to enforce the school street has started to wane.

Local campaigner Jon Irwin, pictured above helping at Hillbrook Primary School, said, "Whilst I understand that there are much fewer issues than at the outset. I fear that without the council putting a sustainable solution in place where the school street can be self enforced, the current approach may not last too long."
