A 'School Streets' plan has been postponed as Highland Council waits for approvals.

AN active schools project has had to be postponed.

The initiative, at Duncan Forbes Primary School in Culloden, would have seen the area outside the school closed to all non-essential traffic – including school runs.

It was meant to close the “school street” between 8.30am and 9.15am and again between 2.15pm and 3.15pm. The plan is one of several initiatives being used to encourage more parents to get to school on foot or wheels, rather than use a car.

In a social media post, a spokeswoman said: “The planned school streets trial has been postponed due to a last minute delay with approvals. We will continue to work on the trial and start as soon as possible.”

She added: “Duncan Forbes School is looking forward to running the first School Street trial in the Highlands!

“Certain exemptions will apply, including residents, emergency services, school transport, blue badge holders, deliveries and carers of residents.”
