Current parking consultations

Medfield Street area review

Consultation on the possible introduction of a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) in the Medfield Street area.

Background

We asked residents of Medfield Street, Treville Street, Ponsonby Road and Roehampton Lane for their views on the current parking conditions where they live and whether they supported the introduction of a CPZ. This followed the receipt of a petition from some residents of these roads requesting the extension of the Roehampton CPZ (R2) into their roads in order to improve the parking conditions in the area.

Consultation

Residents were asked specifically whether they wanted the existing Roehampton CPZ R2 sub-zone (operating 11am to 12 noon, Monday to Friday) extended into their roads.

Results

The consultation closed on 23 October 2017.

  • Of the 219 consultation letters delivered, 75 were returned. This represents a response rate of 34%
  • The responses over all roads consulted indicate that the majority of respondents are dissatisfied with the present parking conditions, 47 (64%), and support the CPZ extension into their roads 43 (59%)
  • The majority of respondents from Roehampton High Street did not support the CPZ, 11 (61%)

Decision

It has been agreed to:

  • Extend the Roehampton CPZ (R2) (11am to 12 noon, Monday to Friday) into Medfield Street, Treville Street and Ponsonby Road
  • Conduct a further consultation with residents and businesses in Roehampton High Street to notify them of the Council's decision to extend the Roehampton CPZ (R2) into the above roads and ask for their views on a set of proposals for their road including the option of joining either the Roehampton R1 or R2 sub-zones
