Update 5 September 2017

Following an issue raised by residents of Woodhayes Road during a CPZ meeting (4th September 2017 and organised by residents of Wool Road area) with concern that Peregrine Way, Woodhayes Road, and Crooked Billet were included as part of the roads that petitioned the Council for a CPZ. The Council confirms that Woodhayes Road and Peregrine Way did not petition the Council for a CPZ. However some residents from Crooked Billet petitioned the Council in 2014 for inclusion into the existing VOs CPZ.

In anticipation of the likely parking displacement into neighbouring roads, it was agreed that the Council would carry out an informal consultation across a larger area (including Woodhayes Road and Peregrine Way), to give those residents an opportunity to air their views.

 

Informal consultation 31 August 2017

Following petitions received from residents in Wool Road, McKay Road, Dunstall Road and Ernle Road, experiencing parking difficulties in their road, the Council is proposing to introduce a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) and will conduct a consultation to give the community an opportunity to express their views with regards to operational days and hours. In anticipation of the likely parking displacement into Woodhayes Road, Crooked Billet, Peregrine Way and the adjacent section of Copse Hill, these roads are being included in the consultation to give residents an opportunity to express their views also.
