Borough and Bankside (C2) CPZ review

The Borough and Bankside (C) Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) was introduced in 1974. The zone was subject to a review in 2001 when the CPZ split into two smaller zones Bankside (C1) and Borough (C2), in order to reduce the effects of inter-zone commuting. The last review of the C2 zone was undertaken in 2006, when minor changes to the parking layout were made.

The Borough (C2) parking zone currently operates from Monday to Friday, between 8.30am and 6.30pm

Consultation

Southwark Council conducted a review of the operating hours and days of the C2 parking zone in mid-2016. A flyer was sent to every address in the parking zone with a link to our online consultation. The results of the consultation showed that there was very little support for a change in the operating hours or times of the parking zone and thus no change was proposed.

We have however proposed the upgrade of all single yellow lines across the zone to double yellow lines as well as the extension of several parking bays; this is to ensure that parking only occurs in marked bays and not in unsafe locations such as corners and across driveways.

The Cabinet Member for Environment and Public Realm approved the proposed changes across the zone as shown in this report.

Following the approval of this report, statutory consultation commenced on 1 February 2018 and finished on 22 February 2018. We are currently in the process of creating a report of the representations received during this period and will present this to the Cabinet Member for determination later this year.

You can view the notice of proposal and drawings (pdf, 3.9mb) of all proposed changes.

Should the changes be approved, parking at the weekends will be restricted to marked bays of which 100 additional spaces have been created as part of these proposals.
