New School Streets

Why are we doing this?

We are introducing 10 new School Streets in Croydon from the 1st September. The schemes are being introduced under an Experimental Traffic Order, with a 6-month parallel public consultation.

Information about the experimental schemes, including the reasons behind School Streets, how they operate, the experiences from similar schemes and how residents responded to the initial survey can be found in the Frequently Asked Questions sheet and detailed report below.

The new School Street locations are:

  • Attlee Close, Thornton Heath, entire length of road.
  • Chapman Road, Croydon, between Kingsley Road and Fairmead Road; and Thomson Crescent, Croydon, between Kingsley Road and Euston Road.
  • Dickenson’s Lane, Croydon, entire length of road.
  • Haling Road, South Croydon, between the north to south arm of Haling Road and Selsdon Road.
  • Keston Avenue, Coulsdon, between Coulsdon Road and Court Avenue.
  • Marston Way, Upper Norwood, entire length of road.
  • Montpelier Road, Purley, between Brighton Road and the common boundary of Nos. 84 and 86 Montpelier Road.
  • Oakley Road, South Norwood, entire length of road; and Sandown Road, South Norwood, entire length of road.
  • Southcote Road, South Croydon, between The Ridgeway and the westernmost junction with Ellenbridge Way.
  • Woodend, Upper Norwood, entire length of road

The Public Notice and drawings for the individual schemes are provided below.

What do we want to know?

The Public Notice invites objections to the new School Street schemes. One purpose of using the Experimental Traffic Order procedure is for the public to experience the scheme and enable an informed response to the consultation, including giving consideration to the evolving traffic developments that are expected to occur in the initial months of the schemes.

The online survey form will remain open until 1st March 2021, after which the consultation closes and the outcome will be considered – with view to either withdraw, amend or make the School Street permanent.

To comment or object to the Traffic Order we require your name and contact details. It is not possible to consider comments/objections from unknown sources.

Please see the Public Notice for details if you wish to submit your comments or objections by letter or email, instead of using this online survey form.
