Parking Consultation in September

Lambeth Council have helpfully released an update on the Parking Survey (we have been chasing our Councillor Paul Gadsby for a month but have received no response but luckily we saw this on twitter).

The study’s work programme has been shaped by feedback from both residents and local ward councillors who have been influential in deciding the priority areas.

The first phase of the Parking Study, focusing on the non-Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) areas of Vassall / Coldharbour and the southern part of Brixton Hill, has now been completed.

Proposed CPZs for both areas have been designed and costed by engineers and an application for funding is now underway. If the funding is approved, it should be in place by late summer and we plan to consult with all residents in the affected areas in September; the outcome of that consultation will help inform the decision on whether to proceed or not.

The second phase of the study is now underway, focusing on a review of the parking situation in existing CPZs and many of the non-CPZ areas in the borough. Officers are due to report back on the findings in November.

Great news that (subject to funding) we will have a consultation in September.  It is important to note that the last two consultations were not in favour of a CPZ, largely driven by those addresses fortunate enough to have off road parking.

If we are to succeed in getting a CPZ and stopping the commuters then we will need everyone to drum up support as it will not be easy.

  1. I received an email over the weekend from Paul Gadsby to let me know that the CPZ consultation is being moved ahead under a quicker timeline with the potential for implementation in around 12 months. This does all hinge on the residents voting for a CPZ to be introduced!

  2. This is really good news but we need to build a strategy to ‘get the vote out’ and secure a decisive vote in favour. I’m ready and willing to assist with this – knock doors, drop leaflets etc.
