Statutory Consultation - 19 September 2013

Following representations made to the Council by some local businesses regarding parking difficulties for their patrons, the Council is proposing to introduce new parking controls in Firstway. These particular proposals are to assist the veterinary practice on Kingston Road with their customers parking needs.

Proposed changes

The proposed changes are detailed below and shown on drawing Z78-214-01-01 (0.1MB).

  1. To introduce free short term parking, to operate Monday to Friday between 8.00am and 6.30pm with a maximum stay of 1 hour and no return within 1 hour.
  2. To introduce double yellow lines at the junction of Firstway with Grand Drive and opposite the proposed parking bays.

What happens next

A Notice of the Council's intention to introduce the above measures will be published in a local newspaper (The Guardian), London Gazette and posted on lamp columns in the vicinity. Representations for or against the proposals described in this Notice must be made in writing to the Head of Street Scene and Waste, Merton Civic Centre, London Road, Morden, Surrey, SM4 5DX or email trafficandhighways@merton.gov.uk by no later than 11 October 2013 quoting reference ES/SGE/FIRSTWAY. Objections must relate only to the elements of the scheme that are subject to this statutory consultation.

All representations along with Officers’ comments and recommendations will be presented in a report to the Cabinet Member for Environmental Sustainability and Regeneration. Please note that responses to any representations received will not be made until a final decision is made by the Cabinet Member.

We are required to give weight to the nature and content of your representation and not necessarily the quantity. Your reasons are, therefore, important to us. Copies of the proposed Traffic Management Order (TMO) and other documents giving more details of the proposals may be viewed 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 and Raynes Park Library.
