CONTROLLED PARKING ZONE A – RIVERSIDE AREA PARKING REVIEW CONSULTATION RESULTS

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for the Environment

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No

Purpose:

In May/June 2018, a parking review and consultation was carried out in a sub section of Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) A, located in the Hammersmith Broadway Ward. The collection of streets bound by the River Thames, Fulham Palace Road and Hammersmith Flyover is referred to as ‘the riverside area’.

This report details the results of the public consultation held in May/June 2018 and provides feedback on the current parking situation in the riverside area of CPZ A. It explains the views 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 the maximum stay period for pay & display visitors. The consultation also provided the opportunity for respondents to vote for permit holder only parking.

Decision:

To extend the hours that shared use parking bays operate until 10pm, Monday – Sunday in streets located in the riverside area.

 

To reduce the maximum stay period for pay and display parking to 2 hours in the riverside area.

 

To undertake a review of single yellow lines in the riverside area with a view to increasing permit parking capacity.

 

To consider further consultation with streets on the periphery of the Riverside area if parking displacement occurs as a result of the changes recommended.

 

 

Reasons for the decision:

Feedback from riverside area showed support for extended hours of control in the evenings and at weekends. The majority of respondents also opted for a reduction in the maximum stay period for pay and display visitors from 4 hours to 2 hours.

 

The Council in its role as Local Highway Authority as defined under the Highways Act 1980 and the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 has a duty to maintain the local highway network and ensure 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.
