The Order will come into force on 21" September 2020 and may continue in force for up to 18 months.
2. The general effect of the Order will be, by way of an experiment, to introduce new 'pedestrian and cycle zones' in the vicinity of Davies Lane Primary School E11, George Tomlinson Primary School E11, Hillyfield Primary Academy (Hill Site) E17, Hillyfield Primary Academy (Park Site) E17 and South Grove Primary School E17, comprising the streets or parts of streets listed in column (2) of the Schedule to this Notice. The pedestrian and cycle zones will operate at the times listed in column (3) of the Schedule to this Notice - although in practice it is anticipated that they will only operate during these hours in school term-time, when the traffic signs are showing.
3. All motor vehicles except permit holders, will be prohibited from entering each pedestrian and cycle zone during their ours of operation. Permits allowing vehicles to enter each pedestrian and cycle zone will be available to residents of and employees of businesses and organisations at premises located within or only accessible from a pedestrian and cycle zone, and to disabled person's badge holders who have a bona fide reason to enter or leave a vehicle in a pedestrian and cycle zone, by application to the Council. Any vehicle that is already within a pedestrian and cycle zone prior to its commencement of operation will be permitted to leave. Further exemptions will apply to: Emergency service vehicles; Council Waste Services; other key Council services (e.g. Social Services); Mobility Services vehicles; and Public service vehicles (e.g. Community Transport, Dial-a-Ride).
4. The Order is intended to create a pleasant environment that feels safer in the immediate vicinity of a school, discourage travelling to school by car in cases where alternative means of travel are available, and encourage walking, scooting and cycling to school, thereby achieving positive health outcomes for the school community.

7.

Any person may object to the making of the permanent Orders for the purpose of such indefinite continuation within a period of six months beginning with the day on which the experimental Orders come into force or, if the Orders are varied by another Order or modified pursuant to section 10(2) of the 1984 Act, beginning with the day on which the variation or modification or the latest variation or modification came into force. Any such objection must be made in writing and must state the grounds on which it is made and be sent to: Traffic Orders, Highways, Low Hall, Argall Avenue, London, E10 7AS, or by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org quoting reference T38(20) - School Streets - September 2020. Any objection may be communicated to, or be seen by, other persons who may be affected.
B. If any person wishes to question the validity of the Order or of any of its provisions on the grounds that they are not within the powers conferred by the 1984 Act, or that any requirement of that Act or any instrument made under that Act has not been complied with, that person may, within 6 weeks from the date on which the Order is made, apply for the purpose to the High Court.
Dated 10th September 2020
