How would the ETRO work in Heyward Road?
An Experimental Traffic Regulation Order (ETRO) will be advertised on Heyward Road for up to 18 months, during which time we will consult with residents, businesses and parents, asking for their views on the School Street.
We’ll follow-up our consultation with a six-month progress review, where we will work to understand how effective the restrictions have been. This will allow us to make any changes or decide if the School Street should become permanent.
If the School Street becomes permanent, it will be implemented under a Traffic Regulation Order (TRO).
How will you make sure drivers are observing the restrictions?
We will work with the school to carry out spot checks to ensure that drivers comply with the restrictions. The school will also communicate with parents and carers to help them understand the need to continue to create safer streets for children.
How have we communicated with parents, carers and residents?
- February 2023. We held our first engagement event at the school to discuss our ambition to create a permanent School Street on Heyward Road.
- March 2023. We attended two parents’ evenings where we asked for feedback about creating a permanent School Street.
- March/April 2023. We asked local residents to share their opinions on introducing a permanent School Street.
- July 2023. We held a second engagement event to share our proposed designs.
