Current parking consultations

Wandsworth Common and Tooting Bec CPZ D2 and D3 review

We are reviewing the operational times of the Wandsworth Common and Tooting Bec D2 and D3 sub-zones in response to resident feedback

Background

We asked residents in the Wandsworth Common and Tooting Bec D2 and D3 sub-zones (roads to the north of Upper Tooting Road and Balham High Road only) for their views on parking conditions and on extending the CPZ operational times. This followed receipt of a petition from residents in Mandrake Road to address the difficulties they experience finding a space during the evening and on a Saturday due to non-residents parking in the road and also from Dalebury Road (D2) to address the difficulties they experience finding a space after the one-hour control has ended due to non-residents parking in the road.

Consultation

D2 sub-zone 

Residents in D2 were asked for their views specifically on the possibility of extending the hours /days of control (currently 11.30am to 12.30am, Monday to Friday) to operate ‘all day’ i.e. 9.30am to 4.30pm, Monday to Friday, the same as in Crockerton Road.

D3 sub-zone 

Residents in D3 (north of Upper Tooting Road and Balham High Road) were asked for their views on the possibility of extending the days/hours to 9.30am to 6.30pm, Monday to Saturday.

Results

The consultation closed on 18 December 2017.
