Mitcham Town Centre – proposed controlled CPZ

Update - 22 September 2016

Following Cabinet Member approval to proceed with implementation of the MTC CPZ, street works are scheduled to commence from 3 October 2016. Work will be carried out between 8am and 4.30pm. To allow the works to be carried out as quickly as possible, temporary parking restrictions may be introduced, although parking" cones and signs will be in place to indicate the areas where parking would be prohibited. By doing so, this will keep the roads free of parked vehicles allowing a smooth transition of the works. Vehicles would be allowed back onto the road once the lining work is complete or after the working day.

Schedule of works

Elmwood Road and Whitford Gardens between 3 and 4 October,
Albert Road and Langdale Avenue between 5 and 7 October.
Notices and cones will be placed in your road 12 – 48hrs prior to work being undertaken.

The MTC CPZ is scheduled to come into operation on 17 October 2016.

Informal Consultation January/February 2016

In response to representations received from residents from Langdale Avenue, experiencing parking difficulties in their road, the Council is proposing to introduce a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) in Langdale Avenue and the surrounding roads. In anticipation of the likely parking displacement into the roads surrounding Langdale Avenue, it has been agreed that the Council will carry out an informal consultation on a larger area, beyond Langdale Avenue to give those residents an opportunity to air their views.

Let us know your views

The Council is seeking the views of the community to a proposed CPZ in the Langdale Avenue area. 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.

Please let us have your view by 12 February 2016.
