School streets proposal

​COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update – School Street enforcement will resume from 14th September 2020​
Roads around school gates are often dominated by cars – many causing a danger to children and contributing to harmful pollution levels in the area. 

School Streets are areas around Primary School entrances that are pedestrianised during peak drop-off and pick-up times to help children access the school safely, promote active travel and reduce air pollution. Only vehicles with valid School Street permits will be permitted to enter the School Street area during restricted times.

School Street Permits 


You may be able to apply for a permit which will allow your vehicle to drive in a School Street during restricted times. 

All School Street permits are free and need to be applied for online​. Please allow 7 working days for your permit application to be considered. 


You can apply for a School Street permit if you live within a School Street and your vehicle is registered or kept at your address. You will need to provide with your application: 
  • ​Proof of your residency (such as a Council Tax or utility bill dated within 3 months of your application), and;
  • A copy of one of the following to prove your vehicle is kept at your address: 
    • ​UK Vehicle Registration Certificate (V5c Logbook)
    • Lease, Finance or Rental Agreement 
    • Insurance Certificate and Policy (including Motability Insurance) 
    • Company Vehicles: you must provide a company headed letter dated within 28 days of your application to confirm all of the following you are an employee/director, you are authorised to drive the vehicle, you keep the vehicle overnight at your address, vehicle registration number and the name and position of the person signing the letter. 


These permits will last for up to 1 year or until your residency ends; whichever comes first.

Please be aware that these permits are not parking permits, and if you are a resident you will need to apply for a parking permit separately if you have permit parking on your street.

You can apply for up to two annual Blue Badge School Street permit if you are a Blue Badge holder and if:

  • you or your child attend a school in the school street 
  • you are a staff member of one of our trial schools
  • you are a resident of a school street ​

You will need to upload proof of eligibility.

You will not have to be the driver or owner of the vehicle as Blue Badge permits apply to any vehicle. However the permit only applies when the vehicle is being used solely for the benefit of the Blue Badge holder at the time of entering the School Street.  

These permits will last for up to 1 year, or until your blue badge expires; whichever comes first.

If you are a Blue Badge Holder and require temporary access to a School Street (such as to visit to friend or for someone to collect you for a doctor’s appointment) you may apply for a temporary permit.

You will not have to be the driver or owner of the vehicle as Blue Badge permits apply to any vehicle. However the permit only applies when the vehicle is being used solely for the benefit of the Blue Badge holder.

These will last up to 3 calendar days.

You will need your Blue Badge reference and vehicle registration number to hand.

Only residents and blue badge holders can apply for school street permits. Vehicles driven by the following are not permitted to enter the school street during operating times:

  • trades people
  • contractors
  • visitors
  • parents and school staff
  • delivery drivers
  • taxis or private hire vehicles ​

If a vehicle does not have a valid permit the driver will need to make arrangements so that they do not drive in the School Street, such as finding parking nearby or arranging to visit outside of the restricted times. 

Vehicles belonging to genuine visitors that are already within the School Street before the times of operation will be able to leave without incurring a fine. 
Cardiff council and our permit provider, MiPermit, take the management of your personal data very seriously. Any personal data you provide while applying for a permit will be held in the strictest of confidence in accordance with current data protection legislation.

The information you supply will be used to enable us to process and manage your permit but may also be used for statistical analysis, the identification of fraud, enforcement proceedings relating to Penalty Charge Notices, or for any other purpose as permitted or required by law.

​Enforcement 




It is an offence to enter or drive in an active school Street without a valid school street permit. We will use enforcement cameras to monitor school streets and issue fines (Penalty Charge Notices​) to offenders. 

The fine for this offence is £70, reduced to £35 if paid within 21 days. If the fine is ignored the penalty will increase. There will be a right of appeal if you believe the Penalty Charge Notice should not have been issued. 

As part of a number of other measures to help reduce inconsiderate and hazardous parking, and help make roads safer for children, we also have CCTV cameras at a number of schools to monitor vehicles parking illegally such as stopping on zig zag markings. 

Please remember you must not stop or park for any length of time and for any reason on zig-zag markings, even if picking up or dropping of children attending the school.

Enforcement will take place when schools are open​.​

Schools involved are:
  • ​Allensbank Primary
  • Millbank Primary
  • Ninian Park Primary
  • Pontprennau
  • Radnor Primary
  • Radyr Primary 
  • Rhiwbeina Primary
  • Roath Park Primary
