Update - S3 Extension Statutory Consultation, 03 March 2011

The consultation carried during November/December 2010 (further details below), showed a number representations received within the proposed extension area who would like to be included in the controlled zone, due to the current parking problems being experienced and the inevitable displacement that will occur creating further difficulties.

Residents of All Saints Road, Deburgh Road, Hanover Road, Haydon’s Road (northern section) and Norman Road (northern section) now have a further opportunity to air their views on proposals to be included within the S3 CPZ.

All representations of the consultation along with officers’ recommendations were presented in a report to the Street Management Advisory Committee and the Cabinet Member on 10 February 2011. After careful consideration, a decision was made to:

  • Proceed with a statutory consultation on proposals to include All Saints Road, Deburgh Road, Hanover Road, Haydon’s Road and Norman Road (North sections) into the ‘S3’ CPZ.
  • Proceed with the making of the Traffic Management Orders (TMOs) for the implementation of the proposed S3 CPZ to include Autumn Close, Burns Close, Chaucer Way, Downside Close, Gilbert Road, Grove Road, Hailes Close, the southern part of Haydon’s Road, Holmes Road, Hotham Road, Keats Close, Kipling Drive, Laburnum Road, Lacock Close, Leyton Road, the southern part of Norman Road, North Road, Pope Close and Shelley Way operational Mondays to Fridays between 8.30am to 6.30pm.

Update - Statutory Consultation, 26 November 2010

The informal consultation carried out in June/July 2010, on the proposal to introduce a controlled parking zone (CPZ) in the All Saints Road area, resulted in a total of 453 questionnaires returned, representing a response rate of 27.8%. A detailed breakdown can be seen in the linked informal consultation results table below. In line with the feedback received, it has been decided to exclude those roads which did not support a CPZ except for those roads that would be adversely affected by the inevitable parking displacement.

Those roads that are being excluded from the proposed CPZ are subject to waiting restrictions at key locations such as junctions, bends and cul-de-sacs. This will ensure safety and access at all times. These proposed measures are subject to a statutory consultation which will provide a further opportunity for residents to air their views.

The results of the consultation along with your views and officers’ recommendations were presented in a report to the Street Management Advisory Committee and the Cabinet Member on the 5 October 2010. After careful consideration, a decision was made to: 

  • Proceed with a statutory consultation to introduce S3 CPZ to include Autumn Close, Burns Close, Chaucer Way, Downside Close, Gilbert Road, Grove Road, Hailes Close, the southern part of Haydon’s Road, Holmes Road, Hotham Road, Keats Close, Kipling Drive, Laburnum Road, Lacock Close, Leyton Road, the southern part of Norman Road, North Road, Pope Close and Shelley Way operational Mondays to Fridays between 8.30am to 6.30pm.
  • Proceed with a statutory consultation to introduce double yellow line waiting restrictions at key locations such as junctions, bends, cul-de-sacs and locations where traffic flow is impeded to include Abingdon Road, All Saints Road, Battle Close, Bewley Street, Deburgh Road, East Road, Hanover Road, Merton High Street, Norman Road, South Road, Tintern Close and Woburn Close.

Update - Informal Consultation, 25 June 2010

The Council is seeking views on proposals to introduce a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) in all the roads between Haydon’s Road, Wandle Bank, Merton High Street and North Road, including all connecting roads off from North Road. This proposal is in response to representations and a petition received from local residents who are experiencing parking difficulties in their road(s). Generally, residents feel that the problem is being caused by:

  • Commuters who park and complete their journey by public transport, such as London Underground Stations or working in nearby businesses.
  • Surrounding CPZs (current operating hours 8.30am-6.30pm) displacing parking into the uncontrolled area.
  • Residents and staff of nearby businesses within the neighbouring CPZs avoiding parking charges.

It has, therefore, been decided that the Council would carry out an informal consultation to seek your views on proposals to control parking in the area. For further details please see the linked newsletter below.

Let us know your views

The decision on whether or not to proceed with the next step, which would involve a statutory consultation on the proposals, will be subject to the responses received during this consultation. We regret that due to the number of responses received during a public consultation of this size it will not be possible to individually reply to each respondent.

The informal consultation period for these proposals closed on 16 July 2010.

We welcome your comments on this proposal, which will be noted and included within the proposed measures where appropriate.

Exhibition invitation

Residents are also invited to speak to officers at the public meeting on Saturday, 3 July 2010 from 1pm to 6pm at South Wimbledon Community Centre, 74 Haydon’s Road, London, SW19 1HL.

It should be noted that subject to the responses received, a recommendation may be made to only include those roads where there is a substantial majority in support of the proposals.

What happens next

It is envisaged that the results of the consultation along with officers’ recommendations will be presented in a report to the Street Management Advisory Committee and the Cabinet Member for Environmental Sustainability and Regeneration. Once a decision is made you will be informed accordingly.
