Minutes:

The Chair proposed and the Committee agreed to reorder the agenda and take agenda item 8 as the first substantive item.

 

The Traffic Management Advisory Committee considered the report which outlined objections received from the public following the formal consultation process on a proposal to extend the existing Croydon Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) (N1 Permit Areas) to Atlee Close, Kynaston Avenue, Kynaston Crescent, Kynaston Road (SE of Swain Road), Palmerston Road, Pitt Road and Sandringham Road with a combination of shared-use (permit/pay-by phone) bays and single yellow lines operating 9am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday.

 

The Parking Design Manager introduced the report noting that the report summarised the objections to extending the permit zone. It was noted that the majority of objections received were in relation to concerns that there would be a loss of parking spaces if a CPZ was introduced, however it was stated that there was strong support for the extension of a CPZ with 71% respondents voting in favour of the proposal.

 

Mr Brown addressed the Committee in support of the recommendations stating that relations with those parking on the roads had deteriorated due to inconsiderate parking. It was stated that utility vehicles were being parked on the residential roads every evening and weekend and some vehicles were being left for several months at a time.

 

Ms Saunders spoke in support of the introduction of a CPZ on the roads listed above, however suggested that a new CPZ designation should be created to avoid having people in N1 Permit Area parking in those roads and reducing the amount of parking spaces available. It was further suggested that Palmerston Road had an insufficient number of parking bays allocated and that the green space on Pawsons Road could be utilised for parking bays.

 

Ms Samuels stated that a number of residents Paswons Road had not purchased permits when the road was included in the N21 Permit Area and so had been parking in the surrounding roads which were not part of a CPZ. Concerns were raised that those residents would be required to purchase a permit once the proposed extension was implemented and vulnerable residents would be adversely affected. Ms Samuels reiterated Ms Saunders request that a new permit zone be created and further requested that the operational hours be 9am – 6.30pm. Concerns were further raised in relation to the parking situation on Crystal Palace match days and that residents felt that they were not able to come and go from their homes. Ms Samuels requested that the Zone be implemented urgently as the impact on residents had been intolerable.

 

Mr Drzewiecki additionally spoke in support of the introduction of a CPZ stating that the parking situation in the area had become unbearable and was worse on match days with residents feeling imprisoned in their homes. Everyday activities, such as shopping and school runs had become very difficult and arguments had broken out between residents and others parking on the road. It was felt that the situation  ...  view the full minutes text for item 13/19
