Informal consultation 16 May 2019
We conducted an informal consultation in June 2017 on proposals to extend the existing days and hours of operation of the W2 parking zone. However, due to the poor response rate and lack of overall support the proposals did not go ahead. Since then the council, the cabinet member and ward councillors have received a number of communications from Compton Road, Alwyne Road and Worcester Road, asking for a fresh consultation to be carried out.
Let us know your views
We are seeking views of the community on proposals to extend the operational hours of W2 CPZ, currently Monday to Saturday between 8.30am and 6.30pm to between 8.30am and 11pm and also to include Sunday between 2pm and 6pm or 10am and 4pm by asking all parties to submit their views through the online e-questionnaire, see the e-questionnaire web link below.
Please let us have your views by Friday 14 June 2019 by clicking the following web link to the online e-questionnaire.
Update – October 2017
Following the informal consultation that was carried out between 19 June and 17 July 2017 on the proposed extension of the existing CPZ operational hours, the Council has decided not to take any further action at this time. This decision is based on the fact that the majority of the residents who responded to the consultation did not support any change to the existing hours and days of CPZ operation.
For further information please refer to the report and the Cabinet Member decision, using the following web links below.
The W2 CPZ, operational Monday to Saturday 8.30am – 6.30pm, was introduced into roads to the east of Wimbledon Hill Road over 20 years ago.
Since its introduction the CPZ appears to have been working well. However, the Council has recently received complaints from residents who are experiencing parking problems in their road(s) after 6.30pm, when the CPZ does not operate. A petition, submitted in late 2016, requested that the operational hours should be extended from 6.30pm to 11pm in the evening. and that the CPZ should also operate on a Sunday
Generally, residents feel the problem is being caused by an increasing number of non-residents visiting the area for evening shopping or leisure activities in Wimbledon town centre.
The proposal - June 2017
In response to a petition, the council is undertaking a review of the W2 controlled parking zone (CPZ) to seek views on the extension of the operational hours. The review will also give residents and businesses the opportunity to make other suggestions as to how they think the CPZ could be improved.
Let us know your views
Please complete and submit the online questionnaire, with any comments you may have by no later than 17 July 2017. We regret that due to the number of responses received during an informal consultation it will not be possible to individually reply to each respondent.
