Minutes:

The Traffic Management Advisory Committee considered the report on an objection received from the public following the formal consultation process on a proposal to extend the South Norwood Controlled Parking Zone into Alfred Road, Denmark Road and Enmore Avenue with a combination of Shared-Use Permit/Pay & Display machines (8 hour maximum stay) and single yellow lines operating from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday.

 

In response to Member questions the officer stated that only one objection was received and that it was unusual to receive letters of support in response to formal consultation. The officer further informed the Committees that the council sought to maximise the number of parking bays in a CPZ area so often did not lose any parking spaces.

 

The Committee queried when the CPZ would be operational and were informed that it was likely to be operational in mid-April 2018.

 

The Traffic Management Advisory Committee RESOLVED to recommend to the Cabinet Member for Transport and Environment that they:

 

1.    Consider an objection to the proposal to extend the South Norwood Controlled Parking Zone (South Norwood zone) in Alfred Road, Denmark Road and Enmore Avenue with a combination of Shared-Use Permit/Pay & Display (8 hour maximum stay) and single yellow lines operating 9am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday.

 

2.    Agree to extend the South Norwood Controlled Parking Zone into the above roads as shown on plan PD-310 for the reasons as set out in this report.

 

3.    Inform the objectors and supporters of the above decision.

Cecil Road Area Proposed Controlled Parking Zone - Objections pdf icon PDF 320 KB

The purpose of this report is to consider objections received from the public following the formal consultation process on a proposal to introduce a new Controlled Parking Zone into Aurelia Road and Cecil Road with a combination of Shared-Use Permit/Pay & Display machines (8 hour maximum stay) and single yellow lines operating from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday.

Minutes:

The Traffic Management Advisory Committee considered the report on objections received from the public following the formal consultation process on a proposal to introduce a new Controlled Parking Zone into Aurelia Road and Cecil Road with a combination of Shared-Use Permit/Pay & Display machines (8 hour maximum stay) and single yellow lines operating from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday.

 

The Committee were informed that 14 objections had been received in response to the consultation which were mainly in regards to the times the zone would be in effect, however it was noted that to expand the zone to 8am to 8pm, Monday to Saturday would require the area to be re-consulted and would delay implementation by up to a year. Members felt that it would be better to implement controlled parking from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday and then re-consult after approximately 3 to 6 months of operation to see if the majority of residents would be in favour of extended hours of operation.

 

The Traffic Management Advisory Committee RESOLVED to recommend to the Cabinet Member for Transport and Environment that they:

 

1.    Consider the objections received to introduce a new Controlled Parking Zone (West Thornton Area) in Aurelia Road and Cecil Road with a combination of Shared-Use Permit/Pay & Display (8 hour maximum stay) and single yellow lines operating 9am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday.

 

2.    Agree to introduce a new Controlled Parking Zone into the above roads as shown on plan PD-309b for the reasons as set out in this report.

 

3.    Inform the objectors and supporters of the above decision.

Princess Road Area - Results of informal consultation on the possible extension of the Croydon CPZ (East Outer Permit Zone) pdf icon PDF 402 KB

This report considers the results of the informal consultation on the proposal to extend the Croydon Controlled Parking Zone (North Permit Area) into the Princess Road Area which includes unrestricted roads between Lion Road and Johnson Road in Bensham Manor, Selhurst and West Thornton.

Minutes:

The Traffic Management Advisory Committee considered the report on the results of the informal consultation on the proposal to extend the Croydon Controlled Parking Zone (North Permit Area) into the Princess Road Area which includes unrestricted roads bounded by Whitehorse Road, Pawson’s Road, Lodge Road, Windmill Road and the Whitehorse Road housing estate in the Wards of Bensham Manor, Selhurst and West Thornton.

 

Members were informed that the figures in the report for Pawson’s Road should read 12 responses in favour which made the figure 35% in favour. The overall percentages at the bottom of Table 1 were not affected.

 

The officer stated that it was recommended that formal consultation be undertaken to introduced controlled parking in the shaded roads in Table 1, and while it was noted that some roads that had not voted in favour were included in the proposed area, this was due to possible displacement.

 

Members noted that 35% in favour for Pawson’s Road was still low, however it was noted that to maintain the integrity of the scheme and to avoid displacement the road should be included as part of the formal consultation.

 

In response to Member questions the officer confirmed that parking from Crystal Palace matches did impact the area and the proposal would help when there were weekend matches. It was suggested that a match day CPZ might need to be considered in the future.

 

The Chair noted that it often took two years between receiving a petition and implementing a scheme due to the two phase consultation process followed, and if any roads were excluded it may take over a year to implement any changes to the zone if they experienced any displacement. The Committee would consider the responses to the formal consultation at a future meeting of the Traffic Management Advisory Committee ahead of any final decision.

 

The Traffic Management Advisory Committee RESOLVED to recommend to the Cabinet Member for Transport and Environment that they:

 

1.    Consider the responses received to the informal consultation on the proposal to extend the Croydon Controlled Parking Zone (North Permit Zone) into the   Princess Road area.

 

2.    Agree to proceed to the formal consultation stage for the proposal to extend the Croydon Controlled Parking Zone (North Permit Area) into Amersham Road, Beulah Grove, Berney Road, Boulogne Road, Broadway Avenue, Cromwell Road, Devonshire Road, Elmwood Road, Grace Road, Greenwood Road, Hartley Road, Henderson Road, Johnson Road, Kemp Gardens, Lion Road, Mayo Road, Northbrook Road, Pawson’s Road , Princess Road, Queen’s Road, Strathmore Road, St. Saviour’s Road, Tirrell Road, Whitehorse Road, Windmill Grove and Windmill Road as shown on Drawing No. PD – 345/1.

 

3.    If formal consultation is proceeded with, delegate to the Highway Improvement Manager, Streets Directorate the authority to give notice and (subject to receiving no objections on the giving of the public notice) to make the necessary Traffic Management Orders under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 (as amended) in order to implement Recommendation 1.2 above.

 

4.    Note that any material objections received  ...  view the full minutes text for item 6/18
