From today residents can respond to a consultation on proposals for new controlled parking zones either side of Brixton Hill up to the South Circular. The council has taken the decision to proceed with the implementation of a Controlled Parking Zone, subject to the outcome of the statutory consultation.

This follows an informal consultation late last year, which showed support for controlled parking in those areas without a CPZ currently. The proposals have been guided by the detailed comments residents made, including the hours of operation. Efforts have been made to have a mix of areas that are residents only as well as metered parking, so that there are options for visitors to the area but commuter parking is deterred.

This follows a great deal of work by residents and councillors to highlight the issue and ensure the Council understood the need for parking controls to deal with increased pressure from commuter parking.

The proposals are to:

  • introduce a new ‘D’ CPZ to be operational Mondays to Fridays between 8.30am and 6.30pm, between Brixton Hill and Kings Avenue;
  • introduce a new ‘F’ CPZ to be operational Mondays to Fridays between 12pm and 2pm, between Brixton Hill and Tulse Hill.
  • place an electric car charging point on Kingswood Road.

You can take a look at the Statutory Consultation information below.

Representations for and against the proposals described in this consultation must be made in writing to: Richard Lancaster, Capital Programmes, London Borough of Lambeth, 4th Floor Blue Star House, 234-244 Stockwell Road, London SW9 9SP or email quoting reference BRIXTON HILL CPZ by no later than 12 April 2017.

Objections must relate only to the elements of the scheme that are subject to this statutory consultation. All representations along with Officers’ comments and recommendations will be presented in a final report to be considered by the Council. This report will set out whether the Council will introduce a CPZ in the area, and if so, which roads will be subject to such controls. The Council is required to give weight to the nature and content of your representations and not necessarily the quantity. Your reasons are, therefore, important to us.

Should residents support the CPZ proposals, the intention is that they will be in place by the end of the summer.
