Update - 12 May 2015

Following the implementation of Controlled Parking Zone RPC in Cambridge Road area, The Council received two petitions from Cottenham Park Road and Oakwood Road requesting a CPZ to be introduced in their roads. The Council is, therefore, consulting residents of these roads on its intention to introduce Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) into the following roads: Cottenham Drive, Cottenham Park Road, Cottenham Place, Cranford Close, Hampton Close, Heights Close, Hillview and Oakwood Road to operate Monday to Friday between 12 and 1pm.

Following the formal consultation carried out in June 2014 on the proposed Controlled Parking Zone RPC in Cambridge Road area, a report was submitted to the Cabinet Member for Environmental Sustainability and Regeneration. After careful consideration, the Cabinet Member has agreed to proceed with statutory consultation to include Melbury Gardens, Laurel Road and Part of Coombe Lane into the RPC CPZ. The Council is now consulting residents on its intention to introduce a CPZ in the above roads.

Update - 19 June 2014

Following the informal consultation carried out between August and September 2013, on the proposal to introduce a controlled parking zone (CPZ) in your road, the consultation resulted in a total of 683 questionnaires returned from the roads within the proposed CPZ area representing a response rate of 39.7%. A detailed road-by-road analysis of the results revealed that there some roads are completely against having parking controls and therefore these roads have been excluded from the proposed zone at this stage.

The analysis of the 378 returned cards from the remaining roads, which included Amity Grove, Cambridge Close, Cambridge Road, Conway Road, Coombe Gardens, Coombe Lane, Devas, Durham Road, Durrington Park Road, Hunter Road, Panmuir Road and Pepys Road show that 55.3% support a one-hour CPZ in their road, compared to 38.4% who do not and 6.3% who are unsure or did not comment.

Informal Consultation, 29 August 2013

The Council is undertaking an informal consultation on proposals to introduce a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) in the uncontrolled roads in the Raynes Park Area, as shows on the linked plans below. This proposal is in response to representations received from Cambridge Road residents who are experiencing parking difficulties in their road. Generally, residents feel the problem is being caused by:

  • Commuters who park and complete their journey by public transport.
  • Residents within the neighbouring CPZ’s avoiding parking charges.
  • Staff of nearby businesses.

In anticipation of the likely parking displacement into the roads neighbouring Cambridge Road it has been agreed that the Council would carry out an informal consultation on a larger area, beyond Cambridge Road to give those residents a further opportunity to air their views.

This area is currently being proposed as a new stand alone zone thereby allowing the residents to choose the hours of operation. However, based on the results of the consultation, it may be necessary for those supporting roads to become part of an extension to existing neighbouring zone.

If roads are added as extensions to existing zones they will be adopting the hours of operation of the existing zone it is added to.

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.

The consultation period for these proposals closed on 27 September 2013.

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.

Please note, this consultation is only open to residents within the consultation area as shown on the linked plan below. Only one response will be accepted per household.

Exhibition

You may wish to attend one of our public exhibition to be held at Raynes Park Library, Approach Road, Raynes Park, London, SW20 8BA on Saturday, 14 September 2013 from12pm to 4pm. 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.
