LONDON BOROUGH OF WALTHAM FOREST
ROAD TRAFFIC REGULATION ACT 1984 SECTION 9
SCHOOL STREETS SCHEME - EXPERIMENTAL EXTENSION OF PEDESTRIAN AND CYCLE ZONE IN STREETS IN THE VICINITY OF ST. MARY'S CHURCH OF ENGLAND AND WOODSIDE PRIMARY SCHOOL E17 (BRIDGE SITE) ((T4b)21)
The Waltham Forest (Prescribed Routes) (Pedestrian and Cycle Zones) (No. 2) Experimental Traffic Order 2021
1. NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Council of the London Borough of Waltham Forest on 6th May 2021 made the above-mentioned Order under sections 9 and 10 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, as amended ('the 1984 Act'). The Order will come into force on 18th May 2021 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 extend a 'pedestrian and cycle zone' in the vicinity of St. Mary's Church of England and Woodside Primary School E17 (Bridge Site), comprising the streets or parts of streets listed in column (2) of the Schedule to this Notice (note: these roads will form an extension of a 'pedestrian and cycle zone' currently in operation around various roads around the aforementioned schools). The 'pedestrian and cycle zone' 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 the pedestrian and cycle zone during their hours of operation. Permits allowing vehicles to enter the pedestrian and cycle zone will be available to residents of and employees of businesses and organisations at premises located within or only accessible from the pedestrian and cycle zone, and to disabled person's badge holders who have a bona fide reason to enter or leave a vehicle in the pedestrian and cycle zone, by application to the Council. Any vehicle that is already within the 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.

6. Where it appears necessary for certain purposes, an authorised officer of the Council may, in pursuance of section 10(2) of the 1984 Act, modify or suspend any provision of the Order while it is in force.

7. The Council will be considering in due course whether the provisions of the experimental Order should be continued in force indefinitely by means of a permanent Order made under section 6 of the 1984 Act. Any person may object to the making of the permanent Order for the purpose of such indefinite continuation within a period of six months beginning with the day on which the experimental Order comes into force or, if the Order is varied by another Order or Orders 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:

8. If any person wishes to question the validity of the Order or of any of their 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 was made, apply for the purpose to the High Court.

Dated 6th May 2021
