Residents were also asked which days / hours of operation they would prefer should the CPZ be introduced in their road. Results indicate that 37% of respondents prefer Monday – Friday and 63% support Monday – Saturday. For the hours of operation, 59% of respondents prefer 8.30am – 6.30pm, 25% prefer 10am – 4pm and 16% prefer 11am – 3pm.

Informal consultation 17 November 2016
Following the previous informal consultation carried out during June / July 2012 and subsequent meetings thereafter, we are writing to advise you that the Council has not been successful in securing the car park for residents' use. With this in mind we are now undertaking a further informal consultation to seek your views on the concept of a CPZ. As with any parking management, the proposals included yellow lines and parking bays.
Let us know your views
The Council is seeking the views of the community for a proposed CPZ in the Wilmore End area of Abbey Ward. The decision on whether or not to proceed with the next stage, which would involve a statutory consultation on the proposal, will be subject to the responses received during this informal consultation. To view the proposed design layout of the zone please see the links in the related documents section below.
