Changes are set to be made to the times when pedestrian and cycle zones will be in operation near some schools in and around Enfield.

The school streets scheme prohibits motorists from using certain streets near schools at drop off and pick up times, with the aim of reducing pollution and the risk of road accidents to children.

A notice from Enfield Council in this week’s Enfield & Haringey Independent states it is amending the times when the scheme will operate near eight primary schools in the borough to “better reflect the operation of the permitting schemes”.

The lengths of road that will be pedestrian and cycle zones and the times these are proposed to be in place are as follows:

  • George Spicer Primary School: Sketty Road EN1, from outside Nos. 62/64 to its junction with Clydach Road – 8.30am to 9.15am and 2.45pm to 3.45pm.
  • Hazelbury Primary School: Westerham Avenue N9, from its junction with Orpington Gardens to its junction with Haselbury Road – 8.30am to 9am and 3pm to 3.45pm.
