Rotherhithe parking zone consultation
Proposed parking zone
During 2016/17 we carried out a study on the possible introduction of a parking zone in a network of streets in Rotherhithe north of Brunel Road. In mid-2017 the Cabinet Member for Environment and Public Realm approved the extension of parking zone ‘H’ into Brunel Road and the implementation of double yellow lines across the study area where parking is deemed unsafe. The proposals were publicised and all objections were presented to the Cabinet Member in early 2018. Officers were then instructed to continue with the implementation of the proposals.
The consultation was carried out during September and October 2016. All properties within the study area received a consultation pack including the following:
- The consultation document (pdf, 416kb) (including frequently asked questions)
- A copy of the questionnaire (pdf, 135kb)
- A feasibility drawing (pdf, 1.8mb) (showing the proposal street area)
We have a thorough process to follow when deciding whether to implement a new parking zone. The key, past and future processes are summarised as follows:
- June and July 2016 - consultation methods discussed with the Bermondsey and Rotherhithe community council
- September and October 2016 - informal consultation
- Mid 2017 - decision making
- Late 2017 - statutory consultation
- Early 2018 – Determination of statutory objections
- Mid 2018 – Extension of parking zone H and implementation of double yellow lines (pdf, 1.3mb)
You can view a copy of the Rotherhithe parking study report (pdf, 894kb) containing a detailed breakdown of the consultation results and officer recommendations.
Officers recommend that a parking zone should not be considered for this area. The majority of residents in this area have stated that they would not like to have a parking zone implemented on their road and that they do not have a parking problem. It's recommended that Parking Zone H will be extended to cover Brunel Road.
