CONTROLLED PARKING ZONE F AND S CONSULTATION RESULTS JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2018

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for the Environment

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No

Purpose:

In January/February 2018 a parking review and consultation was carried out in controlled parking zones (CPZ) F and S, located in the Parsons Green & Walham, Town, Fulham Broadway, and North End wards.

 

This report details the result of the public consultation from February 2018 and provides feedback on the current parking situation in CPZ F and S. It explains the view of some residents and businesses who responded to the consultation, on aspects of visitors` parking restrictions such as days in which the controls operate, hours of control and whether to keep or remove permit priority hours. 

 

Decision:

To carry out further consultation in Barclay Road, Effie Road, Effie Place and Erin Close as part of the parking projects and Policy Programme for 2018/19. The majority of respondents from this collection of isolated streets opted for extended controls on Sundays.

 

Reasons for the decision:

Whilst the majority of respondents in CPZ F and S wanted to alter the current parking controls, the low response rate and marginal votes between the different options indicates there is no overall support for any changes to the current parking controls.

 

Feedback from Barclay Road, Effie Road, Erin Close and Effie Place are isolated from the rest of the F area.  Analysing the consultation returns shows that this area experiences parking pressures from commuter activity. We are therefore proposing to re-consult these roads as part of the parking projects and policy programme for 2018/19, in response to the majority of respondents in Barclay Road opting for extended controls.

 

As part of the of the duty of the Local Highway Authority as defined under the Highways Act 1980 and the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, the maintenance of the local highway network and ensuring the movement of the network are essential responsibilities. The design and management of parking spaces is an essential part of the highway authorities’ duties in ensuring the smooth flow of the network. As such ensuring a suitable programme which looks to maintain and improve the highway is essential.
