The Council is carrying out a statutory consultation on its intention to include Island Road in the newly introduced CW3 CPZ.
Shortly before the CPZ start date in early May 2017, a petition was submitted from residents of Island Road asking the Council to introduce a CPZ in their road.
In response to this petition and, after discussion with local Ward Councillors, it has been agreed to undertake a further statutory consultation on the inclusion of Island Road into the CW3 CPZ.
What happens next
A Notice of the Council's intention to extend the CW3 CPZ to include Island Road will be published in a local newspaper (The Guardian) and London Gazette on Thursday 18 May 2017. Street notices will also be erected.
Representations against the proposal described in the Notice must be in writing by either emailing email@example.com or to future Merton, Environment & Regeneration Department, Merton Civic Centre, London Road, Morden, Surrey, SM4 5DX.
All comments must be received no later than 16 June 2017 quoting reference ES/CW3IslandRoad
Objections must relate only to the elements of the proposal that are subject to this statutory consultation. The Council is required to give weight to the nature and content of your representations and not necessarily the quantity. Your reasons are therefore important to us.
Copies of the proposed Traffic Management Order (TMO), a plan identifying the area affected by the proposal and the Council's 'Statement of Reasons' can be inspected at Merton Link, Merton Civic Centre, London Road, Morden, Surrey, SM4 5DX during the Council's normal office hours Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm. A copy will also be available at Mitcham Library and can be viewed on our website.
All representations along with Officers' comments and recommendations will be presented in the report to the Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Environment and Housing. Please note that responses to any representations received will not be made until a final decision is made by the Cabinet Member. Once a decision is made by the Cabinet Member you will be informed accordingly.
