The Traffic Management Advisory Committee considered the report on the results of the informal consultation on the proposed introduction of a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) into the Boston Road / Keston Road / Broughton Road Area which included unrestricted roads bounded by London Road, Thornton Road and the existing Northern CPZ in the Wards of Bensham Manor, Selhurst and West Thornton.

 

Mr Andres Ashioties addressed the Committee in his capacity as a local resident and explained that he supported the scheme because it was currently difficult for residents to park in the area. This was mainly due to hospital users parking in the area and buses parking in the local car park. It was added that the parking problems were also causing congestion. Mr Ashioties queried whether residents who purchased parking permits would be guaranteed a space and why the cost of these were higher than neighbouring Boroughs.

 

The Parking Design Manager responded and explained that the scheme would not guarantee a space for residents; however, the controls being introduced would relieve the parking stress and it would be much more likely that residents would be able to park closer to their house than they currently could. He also explained that the earliest the scheme would be implemented would be summer 2019 as there would be a formal consultation with residents and there was a lot of design work to agree. Each household would be eligible for 60 half-day visitor passes a year; however, it was often cheaper for visitors to use pay-and-display or the PayByPhone app. It was further clarified that the permits were a fixed price across the Borough and had not changed for many years. He explained that the prices did vary from Borough to Borough but Croydon was not particularly expensive.

 

In response to Councillor Ali the Parking Design Manager explained that there was support overall for the proposed introduction. It was noted that although it would be possible to implement the CPZ on some of the roads it would cause issues for the roads who do not have a CPZ as it would disperse the parking.

 

The Chair noted that he was a Ward Councillor for the area and he had received multiple emails from residents since becoming Councillor regarding the parking problems in the area and how the introduction of a CPZ would be beneficial. He echoed the Parking Design Manager’s comments and explained that if the CPZ was implemented on selected roads then the parking problems would be dispersed to the neighbouring roads and areas.

 

RESOLVED – That the Traffic Management Advisory Committee recommended to the Acting Cabinet Member for Environment, Transport & Regeneration (Job Share) that they:

 

1.1     Consider the responses received to the informal consultation on the proposed introduction of a CPZ into the Boston Road / Keston Road / Broughton Road Area.

1.2     Agree to proceed to the formal consultation stage for a proposal to introduce a new CPZ operational 8am – 8pm Monday to Sunday into Boston Road, Broughton Road,  ...  view the full minutes text for item 17/17

The Traffic Management Advisory Committee considered the report on the introduction of an enforceable car parking permit scheme at various Croydon Council Estates across the borough to restrict parking to residents and their visitors only, and that vehicles park within marked bays only and not on the restricted areas of the car park currently marked with double yellow lines. Also that only valid disabled blue badge holders use the designated disabled bays (where specified bays are available) on the Estate.

 

The Parking Design Manager explained that the feedback received from the informal consultation had been positive and there was a large majority of residents who welcomed the proposal for the permit scheme. The Housing department had conducted their own consultation; however, a formal consultation would need to be completed before the introduction of the scheme.

 

Councillor Jewitt noted that residents from Kettering Court and Laxton Court had contacted her with concerns regarding the price of a permit. She suggested that a two tier system was looked in to for those who were on a pension

 

Councillor Mohan stated that he was concerned that there was an assumption by residents that the permits would be free as the consultation letter distributed by the Housing department did not specify that there was a cost implication.

 

Councillor Jewitt requested that future reports specified clearer which wards were affected by the proposals.

 

RESOLVED – That the Traffic Management Advisory Committee recommended to the Acting Cabinet Member for Environment, Transport & Regeneration (Job Share) that they:

Minutes:

The Traffic Management Advisory Committee considered the report on the objections received from the public following the formal consultation process on a proposal to introduce ‘At any time’ waiting restrictions in Aveling Close, Carlton Road, Courtwood Lane / Markfield / Osward and Namton Drive.

 

The Parking Design Manager explained to the Committee that a high number of objections were received from residents regarding the proposal on Aveling Close; therefore, the officers were recommending to not proceed with the proposal to introduce “At any time” waiting restrictions.

 

Mr Robert Fleming addressed the Committee in his capacity as a local resident of Aveling Close. He thanked the officers and Committee for considering the petition and objections submitted and was pleased that the officers were recommending not to proceed with the proposal in Aveling Close.

 

In response to the Chair the Parking Design Manager confirmed that no complaints had been received from Veolia, Croydon refuse company, regarding the access to the affected roads.

 

In response to the Committee it was noted that there were not many current restrictions in cul-de-sacs in the Borough; the majority of cul-de-sacs were relatively small and did not have congestion problems. It was explained that further restrictions would be decided on a case-by-case basis and would not impose restrictions on all.

·       Namton Drive – proceed with the amended proposal as shown in drawing no. PD – 361a Rev 1.
