Update - Implementation - 27 February 2012
Following the statutory consultation carried out in November/December 2011 on the proposed ‘VNE’ Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ), which includes Alfreton Close, Bathgate Road, Beltane Drive, Castle Close, Castle Way, Haven Close, Heath Mead, Lincoln Avenue, Queensmere Road and Seymour Road, the representations received along with officers’ recommendations were reported to the Street Management Advisory Committee and the Cabinet Member for Environmental Sustainability and Regeneration on 23 January 2012.
After careful consideration the Cabinet Member has agreed for CPZ VNE to be implemented, with the exception of Queensmere Road, as shown on the linked drawing below. Queensmere Road has been deferred until the affect of the displacement is determined and Wandsworth Council have completed their consultation with their residents.
The zone will be operational Monday to Friday from 10am to 4pm.
It is anticipated that the works will start the week commencing 12 March 2012 for a period of three weeks, weather permitting.

Update - Committee - 20 September 2011
Informal Consultation - 8 July 2011
The Council is seeking the views of local residents on proposals to introduce a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) in all roads bounded by Parkside, Queensmere Road, Bathgate Road and Somerset Road, not including Carnegie Place and Queensmere Close. This proposal is in response to representations and a petition received from some local residents who are experiencing parking difficulties in their road(s). Generally, residents feel that the problem is being caused by:
- Commuters who park and complete their journey by public transport.
- Staff of nearby businesses.
The Council is therefore undertaking an informal consultation to seek the views of local residents on proposals to control parking in their road (see linked drawings showing proposals below).
For further details please see the links in the 'See also' section below.
Let us know your views
The decision on whether 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 the informal consultation closed on 29 July 2011.
