Schools clean air zones

We have introduced clean air zones as part of our plans for a greener Redbridge. We want to:

  • reduce levels of air pollution around our schools
  • help protect children from traffic at the school gate
  • encourage more children to walk and cycle to school

School clean air zones mean vehicle traffic is banned from travelling past schools at the schools' start and finish times during term time only.



Zones are identified with signs and enforced using automatic number plate recognition cameras.

Penalty Charge Notices (PCNs) will be be issued for any vehicle that unlawfully enters the zone.
