Following the informal consultation carried out in September 2011 on the proposed extension of CPZ GC, representations received along with officers' comments were submitted to Street Management Advisory Committee in its meeting on 23 January 2012.
Informal Consultation - 16 September 2011
The Council is undertaking an informal consultation on proposals to extend the existing GC Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) to include Deal Road, Eastbourne Road, Frinton Road, Gunton Road, Hailsham Road, Ipswich Road, Jersey Road, Vectis Gardens, Vectis Road and the remainder of Links Road and Seely Road. This proposal is in response to representations and a petition received from local residents who are experiencing parking difficulties in their road(s). This issue was also discussed at a residents’ meeting held on 19 July 2011 and it was agreed that the Council would carry out an informal consultation to seek your views on proposal to control parking in the area shown on the drawing linked below. Generally, residents feel that the problem is being caused by:
- Commuters who park and complete their journey by public transport from either Tooting Station or working in nearby businesses.
- Existence of nearby Wandsworth CPZs displacing parking into the surrounding area.
- Residents and staff of nearby businesses within the neighbouring CPZs avoiding parking charges.
For further information please see the linked newsletter, drawing and frequently asked questions 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 would ask residents within the proposed zone only to complete and submit your electronic questionnaire with any comments or suggestions you may have by 7 October 2011. The online system has been created to keep costs down and allow the Council to process your views more efficiently. Alternatively you can complete and return your prepaid questionnaire (no stamp required), with any comments or suggestions you may have by 7 October 2011. Only one questionnaire per household within the proposed zone will be will be accepted.
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. We welcome your comments on this proposal, which will be noted and included within the proposed measures where appropriate. It should be noted that subject to the responses received, a recommendation may be made to only include those roads where there is a majority in support of the proposals.
You may wish to attend one of our public exhibitions to be held at Links Primary School, Frinton Road, London, SW17 9EH on Saturday, 1 October 2011 from 1pm to 5pm. Council Officers will be available to discuss 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/or the Cabinet Member for Environmental Sustainability and regeneration. Once a decision is made you will be informed accordingly.
You can view the plans in Merton Link at Merton Civic Centre, Morden during our working hours, Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm.
