Funding is available to introduce measures that support physical distancing on the main road at or near school entrances and at School Crossing Patrol locations. We are considering the following temporary interventions:
We plan a phased approach to implementing these measures.
In phase 1 we plan to trial temporary School Streets as soon as we can at 6 primary schools in South Ayrshire and residents in the roads affected by these proposals will be contacted shortly with more information. This initial trial will help us to learn more about the initiative and the impact that it has on the local community.
The phase 1 primary schools to be considered for the implementation of School Streets are:
Also as part of phase 1, we will be considering temporary measures around the following secondary schools in South Ayrshire:
In Phase 2 we would like to implement more school streets identified by you where these measures would be supported by parents, residents and the school. Implementing these measures requires further investigation and design work and so we invite your comments to help us decide which schools should be prioritised.
Please help us by completing the survey below to say which of the schools you feel would be suitable for school streets and/or road space reallocation.
Unfortunately there are some schools where we do not consider that we could safely provide a one way system or a full road closure, therefore we also welcome your feedback on providing temporary parking restrictions.
