A car ban around a Slough school is being made permanent.

Holy Family Catholic School has previously taken part in the School Streets Scheme, whereby cars aren't permitted access between pick-up and drop-off times.

An experimental period and consultation have taken place regarding the traffic controls.

Now the closure will become a permanent traffic regulation order with advertising.

The road outside Holy Family Catholic School will be temporarily closed to general traffic only, during school drop-off and pick-up times.

Typically roads may be closed between 8:15am to 9am and 3pm to 3:45pm.

Pedestrians and cyclists can access the road. Residents will also be allowed access.

Slough Borough Council have outlined: "School Streets are designed to reduce the number of vehicles around the school and provide a safer environment for children travelling to and from school.

"School Streets also encourage more physically active journeys that include walking and cycling reducing the need for short car trips and subsequently contribute to improved air quality."

On May 3 the scheme was approved, with the traffic regulation order coming into force from May 11.
