Update - 20 February 2014
Following the statutory consultation carried out in September 2013, a decision has been made by the Cabinet Member to proceed with the implementation of the proposed measures.
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 make some changes to parking controls in Oxford Avenue and Kingston Road. These particular proposals are to assist the businesses in the vicinity with their customers parking needs.
The proposed changes are detailed below and shown on
- To convert some existing under-used permit holder only bays on Kingston Road and Oxford Avenue to pay and display shared use bays, to operate with a maximum stay of two hours and no return within one hour. (Permit holders would be allowed unlimited use as they are now).
- To extend the maximum stay in the free bays on Kingston Road from one hour maximum stay to two hours' maximum stay.
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
email@example.com by no later than
11 October 2013 quoting reference
ES/SGE/OXFORD. 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.
