Participation 2021

The participant is committed to:

Organising a week of activities, taking into account the focal theme.
22 September
Closing roads outside 11 schools in the borough. We are celebrating the work we have completed to implement 20 School Streets over the last 14 months. We will be extending the hours of 8 existing School Street closures and closing the roads outside three that we plan to implement a School Street in the coming year.
Carrying out a Car-Free Day event by closing one or more streets to traffic, and opening it to pedestrians, cyclists and public transport. This should preferably happen on 22 September to mark your town or city as part of World Car-Free Day.
Zone opened to residents on Car-Free Day:
we are closing roads for celebration and play outside 11 schools
