Public Space Protection Order - March 2019

Due to ongoing safety concerns of pupils at Dunston Hill and Kingsmeadow Schools, Gateshead Council are proposing to implement a public space protection order around the school site. 

The order would make it an offence for any driver (exemptions apply) to drop off or pick up pupils from Dunston Hill Community Primary School and Kingsmeadow Community Comprehensive School from any vehicle in the restricted area (shown on the attached map) on Monday to Friday between:

8.00 am – 9.30 am and 2.30 pm – 4.00 pm

during each term of the School academic year. 

Before making this order the council must consult with those people who may be directly affected.  You can access the consultation and additional information online HERE.  If you prefer paper copies are available at the school.

The consultation will run until Friday 19th April. Following this, a decision will be taken by the council about whether the order should be granted.
