Following the receipt of petitions in favour of controlled parking, and numerous complaints from residents experiencing difficulty parking in their roads, the council is consulting residents and businesses in the area around the Raynes Park Station on a proposal to introduce a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) in the area.

In the proposed CPZ, provisions have been made for essential long-stay parking by introducing permit bays for residents and for essential business car users.

Residents' visitors would be able to obtain visitors' permits for their stay, while short-term visitors to businesses could park in pay and display bays.

The consultation is an opportunity for the council to inform residents and local businesses of the options available to improve parking access and safety in the area. It also allows you to tell the council whether or not these options meet your needs. The proposals shown on the plan overleaf are intended to reduce and control all day parking by non-residents, and to improve the environment by reducing the number of parked vehicles in the area.

 

The proposal

To introduce a controlled parking zone designed to ease parking problems experienced by residents, their visitors and businesses. The options for controlled times are:

  • Monday to Friday, 8:30am - 6:30pm
  • Monday to Friday, 9:30am - 4:30pm
  • Monday to Friday, 11am - 3pm

To improve safety in the area, we would like to proceed with the installation of yellow lines at specific locations whether support for the CPZ proposal is expressed or not.

 

Let us know your views

We welcome your comments on this proposal. We have provided a list of frequently asked questions to help you make a decision. We regret that it will not be possible for us to respond to all comments received during the consultation. However, any comments received will be taken into consideration.

 

What happens next?

The council will consider introducing a CPZ in the roads where a majority of respondents are in favour. Any zone however, must have a cohesive and logical boundary. It is intended to report the results of this consultation to the Street Management and Overview Scrutiny Panel on 1 September 2004 at 7:15pm. Once the Cabinet Member makes a final decision you will be informed accordingly via a newsletter.
