Update - Statutory Consultation - 13 May 2011

The outcome of the informal consultation carried out in September/October 2010 on proposals to improve the operation of the existing CW” Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) and the proposed extension to include parking controls in the Fortescue Road area, for the:

  • Existing CPZ (Zone CW) resulted in a total of 189 questionnaires returned, representing a response rate of 10.6%. A majority of 81.9% of respondents do not want the days of operation to be increased to include Saturday; 46.6% want the operating hours changed compared to 45.5% who do not.
  • CW CPZ Extension resulted in a total of 152 questionnaires returned, representing a response rate of 31.3%. A majority of 56.6% of respondents indicated that they currently have parking problems in their roads compared to 40.1% who feel that they do not. A majority of 48.7% support the concept of a CPZ, compared to 42% who do not.

In view of the feedback received, it has been decided to exclude those roads (Colwood Gardens, Courtney Road, Christchurch Close and Alphea Close) which did not support a CPZ nor would they if introduced in neighbouring road/s. Those roads that are being excluded from the proposed CPZ will still be subject to waiting restrictions at key locations such as junctions, bends and cul-de-sacs to ensure safety and access at all times. These proposed measures are subject to a separate statutory consultation, which will provide a further opportunity for residents to air their views and raise any objections.

The results of the informal consultation along with your views and officers’ recommendations were presented in a report to the Street Management Advisory Committee and the Cabinet Member on 10 February 2011.

Existing CPZ (Zone CW) CW CPZ Extension

 

Update - 10 February 2011

CW CPZ Street Management Advisory Committee Report/Decision - Informal Consultation

 

Informal Consultation - 24 September 2010

Merton Council are seeking views on proposals to review the existing Colliers Wood (CW) Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ). The review also includes proposals to extend the current parking controls to include Colwood Gardens, Christchurch Close, Fortescue Road, Courtney Road, Clarendon Road, Alpha Close and part of Devonshire Road.

In addition, the Council has received requests for parking controls from residents in some of the roads west of Devonshire Road to be included in zone CW or to have a separate zone.

It is proposed to extend the existing zone rather than the option to provide a separate zone. This option will offer more flexibility for residents and their visitors to have access to a wide area, reducing parking pressures in specific areas.

 

Existing Zone Review

Proposed changes

The following changes are proposed:

  • Extend the existing zone boundary to include Colwood Gardens, Christchurch Close, Fortescue Road, Courtney Road, Clarendon Road, Alpha Close and part of Devonshire Road subject to support from those residents.
  • Convert an existing permit holder bay to Car Club bay (CC) and introduce a motorcycle bay along the flank wall of No. 108 High Street, in College Road just before the beginning of the Red Route restrictions. This will give members of the CC in Colliers Wood more flexibility in the form of an additional car in the area in addition to the existing CC car in Kimble Road. The motorcycle bay will be for solo motorcycles only and would remove the current conflict of both motorcycles and cars competing for available parking spaces.
  • Provide additional spaces or extend parking bays, where appropriate, without compromising safety and access.
Optional changes

The following optional changes will be considered where there is general support to change the operational hours:

  • Part-day controls (10am - 4pm)
  • One-hour control (11am - 12 noon)
  • Days of operation: Monday - Saturday
