Current parking consultations

Dover House Estate parking review

Consultation on the possible introduction of a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) in Dover House Estate.

For more information, read our guidance on how a controlled parking zone works. 

Background

We asked residents in in the Dover House Estate Conservation Area for their views on the current parking conditions where they live and whether they would support the introduction of a CPZ. This followed the receipt of a petition from some residents of Crestway and Huntingfield Road requesting a CPZ to alleviate difficulties they experience finding a space due to commuter and long stay parking by non-residents, including staff and patients of Queen Mary’s Hospital and students of Roehampton University.

Consultation

Residents were asked specifically whether they would like a CPZ implemented in the area and what hours and days it should operate.

Results

The consultation closed on Monday 18 December 2017.
